Governance & Leadership in Teacher Education. Thirty-Fifth Annual Report of the North Central Association Teacher Education Summer Workshop.
Jones, Donald W., Ed.
The Teacher Education Workshop, sponsored by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, provides a means for institutions of higher education to work cooperatively for the improvement of teacher education. The general theme for 1982-83, "Governance and Leadership in Teacher Education," was the focus of the workshop reported on in this monograph. Part One presents a description of the North Central Accrediting Association's Teacher Education Project, which provides assistance to participating institutions in strengthening their programs. Details of activities as well as specifics regarding the organization and functioning of the project are discussed. Part Two contains the position papers which were developed through the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education Task Force. Each paper is presented in its entirety, and clarification remarks are included. Speakers addressed specific aspects of governance and leadership in the areas of: (1) beginning teachers; (2) extended teacher education programs; (3) teacher competency assessment; and (4) changes in national accreditation. The work of the 25 workshop participants in reacting to and studying the papers comprises Part Three. (JD)
