Identifying Future Research and Training Programs for University-Based Secondary Education Departments.
Schneider, Barbara L.
A consortium of 39 schools, colleges, and departments of education along with representatives of the Office of Education convened to study the salient problems in secondary teacher education. Areas of interest included: the working cooperation between administrators and faculty; the development of new curricula despite declining enrollment; the nature and responsiveness of the interface between department and community at large; and the revision of promotion criteria. The feasibility of various preservice training programs and the mechanisms for transposing research data into practical application were also discussed. The role of government and the problems encountered in federal funding were explored. Conferees participated in a series of case studies. Results centered on the use of research, the service component in education, and the teacher evaluation methods discussed earlier in the conference. (LH)
