Current Developments in the Teacher Education of Norway.
Minne, Nels
This report provides a background on Norwegian teacher education programs, policies, and requirements in 19 educational institutions. The basic 2-4 year teacher preparation programs are described. The 1961 law covering the teaching requirements and qualifications for these programs was investigated with the emphasis on the ferment involving the pattern of teacher education in Norway in recent years. Sixteen colleges offering further training for teachers in specialized subject areas are listed. The effect of the Basic School Law of 1969 on Norwegian educational standards is cited. These effects focus on the urgency of examining and revising the teacher education programs offered in the teachers' colleges. Implications for further teacher education programs are made, focusing on the development of the New Law for Teacher Education which is expected to be passed in 1972-73. With the coordination of the proposed Teacher Training Council under the New Law and teacher education programs, it was hoped that the needs and demands of qualified teachers in Norway would be met. A glossary of terms and a 32-item bibliography are included. (BRB)
