Ducharme, Edward R.; Goddu, Roland J. B.
This document is a description of the New England Program in Teacher Education (NEPTE), which is a six-state regional program intended to improve the quality of teacher education in New England. The main focus of the NEPTE staff is its state field agents. Activities of the field agents include the following: workshops; evaluation of proposals; the monitoring and evaluating of projects; presentations of data to concerned groups; conferences with state department of education officers and representatives of all teacher education institutions in the state; and meetings with NEPTE project directors, deans of education at major institutions, and school superintendents. Topics at various meetings at which the field agents have participated have included proposed changes in preservice programs, personnel selection for site roles, and proposals for secondary school teacher training. The field agent is regarded as one having expert knowledge about a practice or being an expert practitioner himself. (JA)
