National Institute for Performance-Based Teacher Education. Final Report.
Norton, Robert E.; And Others
The purpose of the Institute was to provide for improving the quality of vocational teacher preparation by developing the skill of selected teacher educators and other decisionmakers to adapt, utilize, and evaluate performance-based vocational teacher education (PBTE) curricula. The Institute consisted of a series of instructional components including a national workshop for leadership personnel, 10 institutional workshops for training resource persons at each of the participating institutions, and followup technical assistance visits at each institution to facilitate the implementation and evaluation of the PBTE concepts and curricular materials. A comprehensive PBTE state-of-the-art report, a guide to the implementation of performance-based teacher education, and two workshop modules were prepared to support the training and implementation efforts. This report is comprised of 11 chapters. Following an introduction outlining the Institute's major objectives and the performance objectives of the Institute participants, chapter 2 describes how each of the Institute's objectives was accomplished. Chapters 3 through 6 discuss major activities and events, problems, and publicity and dissemination activities. Data collection and evaluation findings, summary and conclusions, and participant characteristics are presented in the remaining chapters. Twelve appendixes are also included and comprise the major portion of the document. The two major appendixes cover description of the PBTE curricular materials used in the Institute and final reports of the 10 cooperating institutions of higher education. (SH) Education. (SH)
