Innovations in Industrial Arts Teacher: Education--Curriculum--Facilities--Methodology.
Rudisill, Alvin E.
The University of Northern Iowa Department of Industrial Technology is involved in a three-phase curriculum development project along with new facility design and construction and implementation of instructional innovations. The report reflects decisions made to date in the process, including the completed phase of developing concept-based cluster courses to serve all majors in the department, including education majors. Second and third phases will focus on advanced technical courses, the professional sequence, and the graduate program. Considered in the report are factors influencing industrial arts teacher education at all levels, such as components of the industrial arts education program, State certification requirements, university regulations, programs offered by the department, the faculty, basic core theory courses, and facilities design and flexibility. Many diagrams illustrate the report, particularly in the area concerning physical facilities. (MDW)
