Model for Implementing Competency Based Teacher Education. Final Report, Phase I.
Liprie, Mary Lou
Phase 1 of a two-part project entitled Utilizing the Competency Approach for Professional Development of Home Economics Teachers developed a model for use in determining the feasibility of establishing a competency based approach in home economics teacher education at the University of Delaware. A review of the literature identified the current state of the art of competency based teacher education (CBTE): its definition, characteristics, instructional methods, and models for implementation. Thirty-two state supervisors of home economics were surveyed to learn to what extent CBTE programs were being implemented in teacher education programs. Using material from the survey and literature, a six-phase model for implementing CBTE was developed. The process involves (1) an initial awareness and acceptance project for vocational teacher educators; (2) identification of priority areas by the teacher educators; (3) assessment of the professional literature, present course offerings, local administrators, teacher educators, and advisory committee members to reestablish competencies; (4) final determination of competencies in cooperation with the advisory committee; (5) development of a delivery system and evaluation procedures; and (6) orientation and human relations programs preceding implementation. General effects of CBTE on the teacher education program and recommendations are addressed. Appendixes include the survey instrument and states and territories which were surveyed. (YLB)
