Competency-Performance Based Teacher Education for Vocational Teacher Educators. Recommended Modules-A Delphi Study.
Maine Univ., Portland-Gorham. School of Education.
The results of a study that was organized to identify and prioritize two groups of teacher/competency modules for vocational education teachers are presented. A major purpose was to rank the modules in the order of their importance. A questionnaire was designed and distributed to 55 vocational teacher educators. One-hundred teaching competency modules developed by Ohio State University were listed in the questionnaire by category, and the respondents were asked to make a judgment on each module as to its importance for both a preservice program and a "survival kit" program for tradesmen entering teaching without any formal teacher training. A second copy of the questionnaire, which included the responses of the first mailing, was sent to the participants who were asked to respond a second time. Twenty-two tables and charts are given to illustrate the ranking of importance of the selected modules by category for both programs. A list of individual modules recommended as required by 50 percent of the respondents is given in order of importance for both programs as well as a list of modules recommended as not needed. Appendixes contain copies of the first and second mailings and a list of the advisory committee members. (SK)
