Beyond the Mandate: The Professional Imperative in Kansas.
Deering, Rosemarie J.; Hohn, Robert L.
Kansas Institutions of Higher Education (KIHE) is a program which disseminates information, processes and procedures relating to personal, attitudinal, and organizational change from a single Dean's Grant Project at Kansas University to all the teacher education programs in Kansas. The program focused on preparing teacher-trainees to educate exceptional children in regular classrooms. This demonstration project trains chief academic officers to initiate curriculum revision in teacher education at the smaller institutions. KIHE has four goals: (1) to acquaint chief academic officers with the need for curricular revision in teacher education; (2) to develop, use, and evaluate training materials to assist faculty in revising curricula; (3) to implement and evaluate a statewide delivery system in which faculty representatives provide local training for curriculum revision; and (4) to document the effectiveness of this approach and disseminate these practices for nationwide use. The progress of this ongoing project is discussed, and examples are given of changes which have already taken place as a result of the project. (CB)
