Status of Teacher Education Doctoral Programs and Coursework.
Rowell, C. Glennon
A survey (fall, 1986) was made of 153 doctoral-granting institutions to determine the extent to which teacher education is a focus of study apart from long-standing areas of study such as curriculum and instruction, special education, and reading. Also included was a section designed to determine what specific topics are studied by students in a separate teacher education program and if these topics are studied by other education majors. Responses were received from 129 of the institutions surveyed. Twenty-six indicated the existence of a separate focus in teacher education. Topics most frequently identified as areas of study follow: (1) current trends in teacher education; (2) research on effective teaching; (3) research on teacher evaluation; (4) historical/philosophical foundations of teacher education; (5) issues/problems in teacher education; and (6) research on design of teacher education programs. It was reported by respondents from the institutions that doctoral students in education other than those focusing on teacher education were not required to study these topics. (Author/DF)
