Planning a Prototype Teacher Center for Ohio. Final Report.
Dickson, George E.
This booklet presents plans for a regional, university-based teacher center that encompasses preservice and in-service teacher education and the dissemination of R&D (research and development) information. The efforts of the University of Toledo to conceptualize and begin implementation of such a center are described. It is stated that the university's first step was to find out what teachers and administrators needed or wanted; their next was to establish, alter or improve cooperative relationships with other groups who would share in the government of the center. Details about these steps are included. The booklet also highlights the possibilities of using educational technology for the design and implementation of a center and provides equipment and spatial specifications, which were derived from an analysis of facilities currently accommodating one or more teacher center functions. The booklet states that, as of June 1972, several decisions had to be made before the center could become operational; among them were decisions about the composition and decision-making role of the governing board, staffing matters, and client access.
