"The Selection and Nurturing of Teacher Education Faculty" from the Tenured Professor's Point of View.
Wiggins, Sam P.
The adversary relationship between teacher education faculty and administration is examined from the perspective of interdependence, and suggestions are made to promote open cooperation between the two groups. First, the mission of the teacher education branch of the institution needs to be developed, and made explicit, with regard to priorities that can readily be translated into budget considerations and into criteria for faculty advancement. Secondly, the institution must find ways to help each faculty member succeed in individual goal attainment. The role of the tenured professor is seen as that of the nurturing and encouraging colleague whose main purpose is to help others grow and advance in their professional lives. (JD)
