Competencies for Allied Health Instructors.
Canfield, Albert A., Ed.
To assist the Colleges of Health Related Professions and Education of the University of Florida in developing and implementing a competency-based teacher education program for preparing allied health teachers, the Center for Allied Health Instructional Personnel conducted a study which resulted in the development of a structure of competencies related to effective performance as a faculty member in the field of allied health. Project activities consisted of: (1) departmental reviews; (2) committee meetings, in which kinds of abilities essential to teaching allied health were examined and competency statements were developed; and (3) a 2-day conference where the administrative competency statements were evaluated and refined. This report contains the first efforts at delineating objectives to guide program development, including: (1) statements of general program goals; (2) competency area definitions; and (3) competency statements for the areas of instruction, curriculum development and planning, education, administration and supervision, research, community health concepts, and specialty theory and skills. Project staff and students have begun the process of developing more detailed instructional objectives, and there are plans to prepare approximately 50 sample instructional modules. The conference proceedings are available as VT 019 638 in this issue. (SB)
