Technical Assistance & Dissemination Project To Improve Teacher Education in the Southeast United States. Final Project Report. 1988-89.
Grambling State Univ., LA. Coll. of Education.
The purpose of this report was to document implementation of the Grambling State University's (GSU) successful teacher training model and the university's project to provide technical assistance and dissemination services to Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) institutions and to non-FIPSE institutions requesting such services. The study was done in three phases, this report representing the final phase. The intent was to focus on student assessment, faculty development, curriculum revision, instructional development, and program monitoring and evaluation. By replicating its own model and documenting project activities, the university was able to demonstrate that the model provided four major outcomes: (1) an improved pass rate of graduates on the National Teacher Examination (NTE); (2) an updated curriculum; (3) increased enrollment; and (4) an improved public image. This report discusses in detail the project, change objectives, program activities, and project results. Implications are that given adequate resources, leadership, and commitment, teacher education programs across the United States can be noticeably improved by adapting the GSU model. An appendix contains letters, workshop programs, and press releases. (LL)
