Professional Teacher Education: A Programed Design Developed by the AACTE Teacher Education and Media Project.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
Part 1 of this report is a general introduction summarizing the 3-year Teacher Education and Media (TEAM) project (ED 003 156) which prompted this effort to (1) suggest a way of reconstituting the objectives and programs of teacher education and (2) show how media can be used to heighten the effectiveness of the program. Part 2 presents the "major contribution of the TEAM project." An instructional systems approach to teacher education is discussed with the use of a teaching-learning situation model. Then the proposed preservice professional curriculum plan, based on the systems model, is presented under 5 behavioral objectives. Content and suggested source materials are listed which should enable the prospective teacher to (1) analyze teaching and develop a desirable concept of teaching, (2) form concepts basic to the logical organization of instructional content, (3) form concepts basic to directing the cognitive operations of his students, (4) refine, extend, and integrate the above 3 types of concepts by testing them empirically (with the use of media systems and simulated experiences), and (5) demonstrate and evaluate teaching strategies through critical assessment of behavior in actual teaching experiences. Part 3 discusses implications of the proposed plan with respect to materials, staffing, institutional organization, facilities and equipment, and school-college relations. A 63-item bibliography is included. (JS)
