Preparing Others to Profess: A Trial Year. Director's Report, Project on Teaching and Learning in Graduate Geography, Phase I (July 1973 to June 1974).
Pattison, William D.; Fink, Leslie Dee
This report describes the attempts of five university geography departments -- at Clark University and the Universities of Illinois, Iowa, Colorado, and California at Berkeley -- to explore ways for incorporating teaching preparation into the programs of their docutoral students. The Objective of the project was to propagate among geographers the concept of teaching as responsibility for learning and to take the lead in putting that concept into action. Each department developed its own unique program based on the overall objective. The report is divided into three parts. Part one provides an introduction to the background and purpose of the project. Part two provides recommendations on geographic education as the master framework for teaching innovation, student participation, intended learner outcomes, management models, exploration models, and sharing and delegating authority to be used by future directors of local training programs. Part three provides recommendations for structuring and making a workable national system. Appendices include the individual reports upon which the recommendations are based. (Author/DE)
