Teacher Education Institute for New Health Occupations Education Teachers. Final Report.
Holloway, Lewis D.
A three-week summer institute was held to provide basic knowledge and skills in the art of teaching for new health occupations teachers involved in training paraprofessionals in the health field. Twenty trainees participated in institute activities designed to prepare them to: select appropriate types and depth of learning experiences (especially for the disadvantaged) necessary for implementing a suggested, or previously developed curriculum; state objectives in behavioral terms; plan lessons effectively; use a number of instructional methods (the lecture, the demonstration, and the lecture-discussion methods); make effective classroom presentations (video-taped microteaching sequences); produce and utilize common types of instructional media; develop professionalism; use measurement and evaluation techniques effectively; and use information retrieval systems such as the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). Trainees completed identical 23-item self-rating scales on their teaching ability on the first and last days of the institute; comparison of the mean pre- and postinstitute scores of each trainee showed a significant growth in their perceived teaching abilities. Also, a majority of the responses to a followup institute evaluation form (completed by both trainees and supervisors) were positive. (A 33-item bibliography and an appendix specifying the curriculum of the institute are included.) (SM)
