Ph.D. and Ed.D. Program Adaptations for College Teachers.
Dressel, Paul L.; Guiste, Evelyn B.
The extent to which the Ph.D. and/or Ed.D. programs have been adapted to assist in preparing students for college teaching was surveyed. Of 309 universities, 122 responded, and of these, 72 had no adaptations. However, 50 universities indicated the availability, in at least one discipline or field, of modifications in the Ph.D. and/or Ed.D. programs for individuals pursuing a career in college teaching. Although it is unclear if the university-wide statements were sanctioned by the graduate school, department, or doctoral committees, the following universities had such statements for the Ph.D. program: Ball State University, Bowling Green State University, Clark University, Duke University, Wake Forest University, and the University of Kansas. Candidates are required to participate in one or more of the following: teach a course in one specific discipline, register or take a course oriented to college teaching, and teaching apprenticeship. Thirty universities indicated the existence of departmental Ph.D. program modifications. In addition to listing departmental requirements and Ph.D. and Ed.D. modifications, case studies of adaptations are included. (SW)
