Linking Teacher Education and Health Care Through Contingency Management of Learning.
Gillespie, Wilma B.
Organizational linkages between teacher education courses and various health care industries used to promote the professional growth and development of 14 University of Louisville (Kentucky) students are described. Students who took part in the program defined their own educational needs, wrote performance objectives to address these needs, selected appropriate out-of-university projects, and contracted with a supervising staff member for a specific grade in the course, based on the quality and number of projects undertaken. The contingencies involved in the completion of the project required internship periods at health care agencies. A post-internship conference provided means of assessment for the students who participated. Positive contingency contracting resulted in the successful achievement of performance objectives. (LH)
