The State of the Art of Competency-Based Teacher Education. A Review of Selected Literature.
Berty, Ernest
This paper provides a background of the major issues and concerns associated with the concept of competency-based teacher education (CBTE). The tenor of the literature reviewed ranged from confidence in the concept as a catalyst for rebirth in teacher education to widespread pessimism because of inadequate research to justify such a movement. This paper consists of five component parts: (a) "An Overview of Teacher Education," which reveals the absence of any single best approach to teacher education; (b) "Salient Features of CBTE," which describes the competency strategy, (c) "Research and CBTE," which denotes the weak knowledge base associated with the movement; (d) "Evaluation and CBTE," which divulges the rethinking needed in the evaluation phase; and (e) "Other Issues and Concerns." A sample list of teaching characteristics and behaviors, identified by a group of teacher trainers, concludes this papers. A 16-item bibliography is included. (Author)
