Applying Research to Teacher Education: The University of Utah's Collaborative Approach. First Year Preliminary Report.
In 1983, the National Institute of Education funded the Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development to conduct a study, Applying Research to Teacher Education (ARTE) Research Utilization in Elementary Teacher Education (RUETE). The ARTE:RUETE study's purpose is to develop preservice instruction incorporating current research findings on effective instruction and schools and to assess the impact of the preservice instruction. The RUETE facet draws upon research of effective instruction to inform teacher education practice. This two-year study integrates: (1) application of research on effective instruction, through a process of collaborative inquiry using the Interactive Research and Development on Teaching model; (2) utilization of processes of adult learning in a systematic manner; and (3) development of teacher education academies. This paper reports the first year's progress, that is, strategies developed for affecting preservice teacher education with research findings on effective instruction and preliminary assessment of those strategies. The initial development of the Teacher Education Academies is also described. The remainder of the document summarizes the situational analysis of the University of Utah site. The Utah RUETE research design and findings are described in relation to the context of the teacher education program. Appendices include materials from professional meetings supportive of this research project. (JMK)
