Institutionalization of Educational Change. Case Studies of Teacher Corps' Influence on Schools of Education. Special In-Depth Study II: Institutionalization at Institutions of Higher Education. Final Report.
Bush, Robert N.; Bock, John C.
This final report presents the findings of a study of institutionalization of educational change at four Teacher Corps sites in schools of education. The study investigated and traced the projects' attempts at educational change, and explored the reasons why some changes became part of the regular teacher training program of the schools while others did not. In the report's executive summary, the findings are discussed, and the causes of the overall success of these Teacher Corps projects in creating a lasting impact are explored. Part One of the report presents the background and design of the study. Part Two contains the analysis of the four case studies, each treated individually and anonymously. The institutions and their settings are described, and the faculty-Teacher Corps relationship is delineated. Part Three provides the findings, conclusions, and interpretations of the study results. A bibliography on organizational change is appended. (FG)
