Innovation in Teacher Education.
Haysom, J. T.; Sutton, C. R.
Those who wish to explore new approaches in the education of undergraduates may find in this case study techniques which can be employed in their particular field. The strategy of curriculum development described and discussed begins with a community of interested people pooling ideas and devising a range of student activities. In Chapter 2 a description is given on the origins of the Science Teacher Education Project, the feature of the community of science education tutors which made it possible, and the way it worked. Chapters 3 and 4 deal with the reasons for considering student activity rather than the teaching method, and with the options that are available outside the confines of conventional lectures, seminars or tutorials. In Chapter 5, the progress made in the project is described. The objectives of teacher education and ways used to improve the design of the challenges offered to student teachers are described in Chapter 6. In the final two chapters, incorporation of new ideas and evaluation of the project are presented. (Author/EB)
