[Mutual Involvement Review Activity (MIRA) for Competence-Based Teacher Education (CBTE)].
Darcy, C. Michael; And Others
This paper describes the Mutual Involvement Review Activity (MIRA) procedure for helping teacher education institutions to restructure their programs in the competency mode. This procedure is a device for organizing the use of a consultant team to cover all areas involved in the introduction, development, and operation of a new mode of teacher training. Designed to reflect a competency-based teacher education (CBTE) project as seen by others experienced in the field, the format consists of questions on the following topics: a) structure for CBTE, b) project governance, c) financial resources, d) program development, and e) management plan. The questions are used as a guide for discussion with people from various role groups, such as college administrators, college professors of education, school district administrators, and teacher representatives. Within three weeks following the discussions, the MIRA consulting team will write a report for the professional use of MIRA and project members. (PD)
