Competency Based Industrial Teacher Education Project Phase III: Inservice Program. Final Report.
University of South Florida, Tampa.
The third phase of a competency-based industrial teacher education project was designed to implement an inservice competency-based industrial teacher education program. (Phases I and II had identified professional competencies needed by industrial education instructors and pilot-tested a preservice workshop.) Seventeen non-certified instructors were aided in mastering the inservice competencies by fifteen local resource persons and six industrial teacher educators working cooperatively with a series of professional vocational teacher education modules. Competency rating instruments were devised and the seventeen instructors were rated by students and educators on fifty-seven preservice and inservice competencies. Instructors were generally rated as effective, and it appears that a field-based, competency-based approach is a viable alternative to the traditional university approach to industrial teacher education. However, it was concluded that a more effective system of evaluating instructors' mastery of competencies is needed, and that the three phases did not fully address the issue of competency-based vocational education and that additional research is needed in this area. Data tables are interspersed throughout the report and rating forms used in the project are appended. (BL)
