This paper describes a program to completely redesign teacher education at Syracuse University into a program that is personalized, systemic, self-paced, modularized, diagnostic, competence oriented, multimodal, regenerative, comprehensive, criterion referenced, and field centered. The program includes five major components. The first component is a personalized orientation-entry whereby students enter the program only after consideration of the career options and individual goals. The second component is a systematic personalized data profiling and tracking system. The third component is planning a program that is consistent with the specific goals, values, and personality of the individual. The fourth is a training and development component that includes the following phases: (a) the development of a repertoire of basic skills, concepts, and affective dispositions; (b) functional clusters of basic enablers; and (c) the development of a repertoire of teaching strategies that focuses on the task of organizing basic enablers and/or clusters for specific intended outcomes. The fifth component is a teaching center designed to serve the university by providing personalized training and development for graduates and undergraduate university students and to deliver on-site, cost-free graduate education and inservice education to center staff.
