Quality Assurance in Teacher Education. Proceedings of the 1981 Summer Workshop of the Association of Teacher Educators (East Lansing, MI, August 2-5, 1981).
Association of Teacher Educators, Reston, VA.; Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Inst. for Research on Teaching.
Participants in the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE)/Institute for Research on Teaching (IRT) Summer Workshop on "Quality Assurance in Teacher Education: Research Into Practice," attended sessions on higher education and took part in workshops focusing on research on teaching. The ATE presented 32 sessions reviewing current developments in teacher education. The sessions were grouped around four themes: (1) teacher candidate selection and evaluation; (2) preservice teacher education content, organization, and field experience; (3) building bridges between colleges and school districts; and (4) professional staff development. The IRT sponsored four day-long research-into-practice workshops, one each on the learner, the teacher, subject matter, and instructional settings. This booklet contains edited versions of the three major addresses presented at the conference, and brief summaries of the small group presentations and IRT workshops. The major addresses dealt with the impact of educational research, the effectiveness of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and reactions to a National Education Association report on professional development.
