Professional Teacher Education II; A Programed Design Developed by the AACTE Teacher Education and Media Project.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) Media Project was developed to determine whether (1) the gap between the producer and the user of educational innovations could be bridged; (2) a meaningful way to present the results of educational research to the user could be designed; and (3) the integrated and functional use of media in instruction could be demonstrated effectively. Asahel D. Woodruff's model of behavior as an energy system characterized by perception, concept formation, decisionmaking, trial, and feedback was adopted to accomplish these purposes. The first two components of this model were used for a series of regional workshops in teacher education. Major content components of the workshop format were interaction analysis, nonverbal classroom communication, microteaching, and simulation, each presented by an expert in the development of that particular area, backed up by an instructional materials specialist. Small groups of participants viewed a video tape presentation of each content model, followed by discussion. When all participants had been exposed to all four models, content and design and media utilization were analyzed in large-group discussion, and alternative models were presented. The evaluation component substantiated the workshops' effectiveness. (Included are detailed presentations of each component of the workshop format plus bibliographies.) (SG)
