A Project to Develop, Test, and Implement a Competency-Based Undergraduate Vocational Teacher Education Program. Final Report. Fiscal Year, 1976-77.
Toney, John W.
A project was conducted to develop a competency-based undergraduate vocational teacher education program in the areas of business education, distributive education, home economics related occupations, health related occupations, and industrial and technical education. The primary emphasis was on the development of competency-based materials and included four major stages: (1) identification of appropriate undergraduate teacher education competencies from the Cotrell list as well as additional competencies not included in the list; (2) writing, reviewing, and revising competency-based teacher education materials and developing resource materials, reference materials, and aids to accompany them; (3) assignment of materials to courses and their incorporation into the undergraduate vocational teacher education curriculum; and (4) field testing of materials during and after implementation and the development of a competency-based teacher education evaluation procedure. The major accomplishments of the project were the development of competency-based materials for the undergraduate vocational teacher education program and the elimination of repetitive content in the undergraduate program. (The assigned competencies for the courses in the undergraduate program are appended.) (EM)
