Elements in the Preparation of Community College Instructors in Colorado.
Martin, Delbert William
The primary purpose of this study was to determine which elements were most appropriate for inclusion in programs for the professional preparation of community college teachers in Colorado, and which elements were unique to the community college and could not be effectively treated in core courses for different levels of teacher education. The population for this study was limited to full-time instructors and division directors in each of the fifteen campuses of the twelve community colleges. There were three major findings: that three elements, "history and development of the community college,""philosophy and functions of the community college," and "implications of the open-door concept," are unique to the two-year college and should be treated in core courses designed specifically for community college instructors; that the remaining 32 elements identified in the study were not considered unique to the community college and could be effectively treated in core courses for different levels of teacher education; and that 50 percent or more of all the respondents strongly recommended each of the 35 elements for inclusion in teacher preparation programs.
