National Institute for Performance-Based Teacher Education. Second Phase: 1976-1977. Final Report.
Norton, Robert E.; And Others
The purpose of the National Institute for Performance-Based Teacher Education (PBTE) was to provide for improving the quality of vocational teacher preparation by developing the skill of selected teacher educators, staff development leaders, and other decision makers to adapt, utilize, and implement PBTE concepts and curricular materials. Personnel from twenty-five institutions representing twenty-one different states participated in the institute. The institute consisted of a series of instructional components including two national workshops for leadership personnel, twenty-four on-site workshops for training additional resource persons at each of the participating institutions, and follow-up technical assistance to facilitate the implementation process. In addition to the workshops conducted and the technical assistance provided, two workshop PBTE modules (CE 014 160-161) and a fifteen-minute color slide/tape presentation on the role of the resource person were disseminated. Feedback from the two national workshops and the on-site workshops was very positive, and the stated objectives of the institute were successfully accomplished. (Two-thirds of this report consists of an appendix which includes a description of the PBTE curricula materials used in the institute, the script of the color slide/tape presentation, final reports of the participating institutions, and other related materials. A report of a subsequent PBTE national workshop and related training materials are also available in the ERIC system under the following CE numbers: 013 792-795.) (Author/BM)
