Dissemination Activities Associated with Phase II. The Feasibility of Educational Specifications for the Ohio Comprehensive Elementary Teacher Education Program. Final Report.
Toledo Univ., OH. Coll. of Education.
This report deals with dissemination efforts associated with the Ohio Elementary Teacher Education Model project located at the University of Toledo. A necessary prerequisite for development activities is an adequate expository base upon which a model can be built. A face-to-face confrontation is then needed between those who participated in this process and those interested in developing the model for their own situations. The dissemination activities fall into three groups: 1) Twelve non-Ohio universities and colleges were visited by staff members who explained the Ohio model and then discussed with decision makers the necessary efforts and anticipated problems in developing the model. Results of this dissemination varied, depending on the resources available to the individual institutions. 2) Dissemination of Ohio state-supported universities was an ongoing process with a 3-day conference in Toledo at the conclusion of the second phase of the project. Follow-up institutes were held to work on actual program development and the revision of re-sequencing of parts of the Ohio Model. 3) Dissemination efforts were also conducted with other agencies, including the Teacher Corps, and at regional meetings of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. Additional dissemination is needed to bring the Model well into the development and implementation stages. (MBM)
