CCBC Notebook. The Cooperative Program in Educational Administration and Supervision.
Pringle, Robert A.; Olsen, Clarence R.
CCBC Notebook, v8 n3 p2-9 May 1979
This master's level program in educational administration was cooperatively undertaken by Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago State University, and Governors State University in 1973. Approved by the institutions in 1975, the program received its first student applications in 1977. The program was planned cooperatively and courses are offered jointly by the institutions. A coordinating council meets monthly to discuss individual student needs, organizational matters, curricular issues, and program guidelines. Students in the program are current teachers or administrators. On completion of the program, each student must possess competencies in six areas. These are administrative and organizational theory, supervision of instructional systems, human relations skills, life styles and learning processes, school-community relations, and research skills. Each student without prior administrative experience is required to enroll in a six-hour field-based practicum. Formative evaluation of the program is done through student questionnaires and followup interviews. Student demands for the program will serve as summative evaluation. (Author/JM)
