Maryville College-Washington University Master of Arts in Education; An Effort in Interinstitutional Programming.
Finch, Mary Ellen; Tom, Alan R.
A program leading to a master of arts degree in education that is offered jointly by two cooperating universities is described. While originally developed for elementary and secondary teachers it has been expanded to include health care educators. The major thrust of the program is to encourage the teacher to assume major responsibility for the development of his or her own program. To achieve this goal, an initial course is offered called the "Teacher as Learner." The objective of this course is to help the individual assess personal strengths and weaknesses and to expand professional horizons. The second segment of the program involves practicum experience. A flexible program structure provides for individual choice of work. Appended to this report is a syllabus for the"Teacher as Learner" course and guidelines for the practicum experience. (JD)
