A Multifaceted Program for the Improvement of Teacher Education in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
Inter American Univ. of Puerto Rico, Hato Rey.
The Inter American University presents a program for the improvement of teacher education in Puerto Rico by implementing the following innovations: (1) an academic retreat to serve as a forum for planning the coordination of activities; (2) the development of an Educational Resources Center to serve as the center for marshalling efforts toward the goal of improving teacher education programs and providing programs for improvement in preservice and inservice training; (3) organization of the Caribbean Teacher Education Association to serve as the body through which ideas are shared and disseminated to other educators; (4) an experimental observation room designed for clinical classroom experiments; and (5) expansion and growth of the annual education conference to reach a wider audience of educators who will work together in action workshops designed so they will have ideas to implement immediately in the home classroom. The purpose of these innovations is to coordinate teacher education activities in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean to facilitate, through the communication and sharing of ideas, a continuity of action in the improvement of teacher education.
