A Study of Community College Teacher-Training Programs in Selected Universities.
Gilbert, Marion L.
As a means of assessing junior and community college teacher-training programs in the United States, the author visited selected universities in Illinois, Missouri, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, New York, California, and Nebraska in 1971. She also met with State and District Junior College Boards in several states. Most of the information was obtained through visits and interviews. Program descriptions are categorized by state, and provide a very brief overview of the training curricula at particular institutions. There appears to be a strong movement towards emphasis on professional training for community college teachers. Direct community college experience is also encouraged as opposed to the past practice of hiring community college faculty from the ranks of high school teachers. The master's degree was seen to be the minimum requriement for community college teaching, and the ability to teach one or two related fields was determined to be highly desirable. Recommendations are made for courses that would be beneficial to the aspiring community college instructor as well as useful as guidelines for a community college teacher-training program.
