The Future of Teacher Education.
Clark, S. C. T.; Coutts, H. T.
This study used the Delphi technique to determine degrees of consensus on the future of teacher education. The panel of experts was comprised of 40 chief administrative officers or their representatives in the English-language teacher education institutions in Canada. In Part I of the study, each of the 40 panelists was provided with 20 statements about the future of education and was invited to formulate additional statements. In edited form these statements became the questionnaire of Part II of the study. In part II, panelists were asked to choose the most probable date of occurrence from given time intervals. Part III provided data on how the group as a whole had reacted to some of the statements in Part II. Panelists were asked to reconsider these particular items in light of this information. In Part IV panelists were asked to state the most probable date of occurrence in their own institution. Significant changes between degree of consensus in Parts II and III were noted in several cases. It was also found that panelists tended to choose a later date of occurrence for their own institutions than for teacher education in general. (The report contains the complete text of the questionnaires used in all four parts, along with an analysis of results at each stage.) (RT)
