The University of Colorado Department of Geography Graduate Program in Geographic Education.
The Department of Geography of the University of Colorado offers as an integral part of its graduate program, systematic training in geographic education in order to improve the preparation of its graduates for careers as college geography teachers. In order to present a systematic component intended to increase the teaching competency of students who plan college teaching careers, project staff state roles and functions that graduates of the program might be expected to fulfill, outline training dimensions needed to prepare students to fill these roles and functions, and suggest the expected yeilds of the program. The program activities, ranging from formal courses to occassional colloquia, are designed to develop varying levels of theoretical knowledge and practical skills, to offer the student opportunities to experience greater responsibility and autonomy, and to reflect a philosophy of individualization. Geographic education programs offer theoretical and practical experiences to students that prepare them in all six training dimensions: content mastery, course design, management of learning skills, interpersonal communications, self-evaluation, and professionalization/socialization.
