A Proposal to the Carnegie Corporation of New York for Developing an Individualized, Performance-Based, Teacher Education Program.
Weber State Coll., Ogden, UT.
This document describes a part of the continuing project intended to integrate the valued substance of past programs of teacher education with new technologically sound methods, contents, and experiences. It is intended to become, at the end of the 3-year development period in September 1971, the only route to teacher certification available on the Weber State College campus. Weaknesses in current teacher education programs are identified as a low correlation between training performance and on-the-job success, the critical need for improved pre- and in-service selection criteria for teacher education programs, and the fact that many current programs are poor models for tomorrow's schools. Under this program the basic mode of instruction is with self-instructional units called"Weber Individualized Learning Kits" or "WILKITS," consisting of moderately structured segments using a variety of experiences including independent reading, audio and video tapes, conferences, etc. Each WILKIT deals with a single significant concept and requires 10-30 hours to complete. The student will progress from study of the principles to practice under controlled conditions and finally to application in the classroom under supervision. Self-evaluation will play an important part in the program. (MBM)
