Bringing About Effective Practices of Education in Non-school Settings.
Ducharme, Edward R.
Schools, colleges, and departments of education (SCDE's) should respond to the needs of prospective educators who wish to work outside the regular classroom as adult educators, recreators, community educators, agency-based counselors, and vocational trainers. Greater involvement in this growing area of teacher training is congruent with the SCDE's social mission and can also assist in the economic survival of the institution. SCDE faculty will have to become knowledgeable about their students' choices to work in nonschool settings, including the characteristics of clients, work environment, financial support, and status of nonprofit and private corporation jobs. Most faculty members have some transferable knowledge from the university as a workplace, with implications for other, nonschool settings. Other sources of information can be gained from reading and discussion, personal involvement, contacts in the field, and visits to other SCDE's where programs already exist. The proposed development calls for ownership, accountability, and responsibility on the part of SCDE's, if they are to succeed in serving the needs of professionals to work in diverse situations.
