Guidelines for the Redesign of Teacher Education.
In redesigning teacher education for the 21st century, five basic principles should be considered as general guidelines. First, teacher professionalism has become a matter of overriding concern. Second, teacher education should offer itself as the field for the humanization of youth. Third, an interdisciplinary approach to education is a key factor for the appropriate and effective operation of any modern educational curriculum. Fourth, the character of the teacher, or professor, as a unique class of personage, is a traditional aspect of teacher education. Fifth, teacher education should be equipped with the requisite facilities necessary to keep industrious and talented prospective teachers acquainted with the developing frontiers of technology. Specific guidelines for the education of professionals who will be teaching in the 21st century are discussed in the areas of: (1) academic organization; (2) student recruitment; (3) curriculum; (4) internship and appointment; (5) inservice education; and (6) academic-governmental relationship.
