The Design of Foreign Language Teacher Education.
Banathy, Bela H.
The Modern Language Journal, v52 n8 p490-500 December 1968
The developmental scheme of the systems approach could be applied effectively to the design of foreign language teacher education. After the performance objectives had been formulated and the learning tasks analyzed and characterized, the design of the system could be undertaken. This would involve--(1) functions and component analyses, (2) the selection of alternative components to accommodate group and individual differences, and (3) scheduling of functions and components in time and place. System integration could be accomplished by the processes of feedback, feedforward, and by the deliberate interrelating of subsystems and subordinating of the subsystems to the system objectives. As the system was installed and implemented, evaluation by monitoring and performance testing could constantly oversee and test the operation of the system and the adequacy of the product. The application of the systems approach promises extraordinary potential for improving and stabilizing, at a high professional level, the training of foreign language teachers. (Author/AB)
