A Report on the Education and Training of Chemistry Teachers for Two-Year Colleges.
Mooney, W. T., Jr.; Brasted, R. C.
Two standing committees of the Advisory Council on College Chemistry, the Teacher Development Committee and the Two-Year College Committee, jointly sponsored a 2-part study of the chemistry programs and faculty of 2-year colleges during 1966-1967. Preliminary results of the study were reported and discussed at a conference held in Dallas, Texas, in January 1968. The purposes of the study and conference were to: (1) bring into focus the current needs of the 2-year college chemistry faculties and to devise or recommend programs to satisfy these needs; and (2) set in motion plans for new training programs to develop an adequate number of qualified chemistry teachers with an understanding of, and commitment to, the philosophy and program of the 2-year colleges. This report presented the findings of the study, certain recommendations based on the study and on the ideas presented by the participants at the conference, and condensations of the principal papers presented at the conference.
