Educational Technology for Pre-Service Training Program at Hyogo University of Teacher Education--As a Case Study of Teacher Education in Japan.
At present, student teaching in most colleges in Japan consists of a 6-week four-credit course of study taken during the last year of training. Many feel this preparation is too short a time for students to be trained adequately, so Japan's Hyogo University of Teacher Education has revised its student teacher program. At Hyogo, students are required to take 14 credits in practice teaching courses throughout their 4 years in the program. One component of the practice teaching credits is a course in educational technology which trains students in the fundamental theory and technique of audiovisual technology and educational information processing. The university's Center for School Education Research provides many opportunities for students to work with the latest equipment and services. Faculty try to maintain close cooperation among all university faculty members, cooperating school teachers, and graduate students for a more effective preservice teaching program. The training program, particularly the educational technology element, is described in detail. (JMK)
