Agenda for Action; A Metaprogram for the Redesign of Teacher Education.
Bowling Green State Univ., OH. Coll. of Education.
The Agenda for Action is a model for institutionalizing a continuous and rational system of curriculum improvement. It defines the process and procedures whereby all teacher education and school service personnel programs in the College of Education at Bowling Green State University are to be reviewed and subsequently redesigned to assure that they are consistent with (1) state accreditation and certification standards, (2) National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education accreditation standards, (3) present and emergent College/University missions and goals, and (4) research findings relative to professional performance. In addition to involving four College Councils and an Administrative Staff, the Agenda has precipitated the participation of 125 professional teacher education and arts and science faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, elementary and secondary teachers, specialists, and administrators in the deliberations of six Program Area Coordinating Units and several Task Force groups. The function of the Program Area Coordinating Units is to redesign all programs within their respective areas to meet the four objectives of the Agenda. Each of the College Councils and the Administrative Staff have specified developmental and/or monitoring tasks. The immediate goal of the Agenda is the preparation of a comprehensive plan showing the process, procedures, and timeline by which specified curricular and organizational redesign will be implemented.
