Competency-Based Teacher Education. State Series Paper Number 1.
Hutinger, Patricia L.
Because competency-based teacher education (CBTE) is being more extensively used to train teachers of handicapped children from birth to age 6 years, this booklet was written to provide an overview of the current literature and practice of CBTE. The author reviews the rationale for and essential elements of CBTE programs, as well as presenting two methods of identifying competencies: the consensus and the model-building approaches. The agencies and institutions that are developing competency-based training programs and the areas of competency they cover are also cited. Observing that the rationales must be clear for including CBTE in any state certification of personnel in early childhood special education, the author defines the problems in validating competencies and proposes some solutions. A list of references is included. (JW)
