Instructional Technology in Support of Competency-Based Teacher Education at the University of Michigan.
Palmer, Warren G.
This paper describes the Educational Media Center (EMC) at the University of Michigan School of Education and its attempts to become technologically ready for competency-based teacher education. The EMC, a facility for storing, producing, promoting, and disseminating learning resources, comprises seven components. A media library serves as a model of a school library to train prospective teachers and library media specialists in the use of school media centers. The autiovideo library, which includes a multimedia classroom/workshop, conducts a series of workshops each semester to train teacher education students in media competency. A self-instruction laboratory is equipped with adequate hardware for the faculty to develop modular units and for students to retrive information. The laboratory also includes a program designed for students to teach themselves how to operate the nonhuman sources of instruction, and to design and produce inexpensive graphics material. A graphics laboratory includes equipment for dry mounting and laminating, photographic copying, and production of transparencies and overlays. The closed circuit television studio and control room is used to develop programs on videotape to supplement classroom instruction. The darkroom and the film ordering and processing office complement the other units in performing their tasks. (PD)
