Innovative Delivery Systems.
Houston, W. Robert; And Others
An edited transcript of a discussion on innovative ways to improve teacher education is presented. The moderator was W. Robert Houston, and the "resource persons" were Fred Wood of Pennsylvania State University and Dwight Allen of Old Dominion University. Wood and Allen are introduced, and their suggestions for improving staff development programs are discussed. Wood begins from the perspective of the needs of schools in rural areas. Allen describes curricular changes implemented while he was Dean of the School of Education at the University of Massachusetts. Discussion among Houston, Wood, and Allen turns to implications of new staff development techniques for teacher certification. Questions from the audience led the discussion toward the relationship between teacher certification and the supply of teachers in subject areas, the role and responsibility of state departments of education, and teacher salaries and incentives.
