The Role of ATE in Teacher Education.
Buller, Melvin C.
The Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) plays an important role in teacher education, and, if it is to continue to do so, must meet the challenge of change in teacher education. The role of ATE, as established in its constitution, is to provide individual professional growth for all persons concerned with teacher education and to promote quality teacher education programs. ATE therefore (a) encourages more minority group participation in its organization, (b) emphasizes the need for educational renewal centers and the continued exchange of personnel involved in the various aspects of teacher education, and (c) encourages experimentation with competency based teacher education. Most importantly, however, ATE wishes to stress the need for inservice teacher education. In the past, the Association had its greatest impact on teacher education in the area of supervision and development of teaching. Now, however, ATE recognizes that only inservice education offers hope for improvement and innovation in education. (MK)
