Teacher Education Development-Demonstration (TEDD) Project Report.
Iowa State Univ. of Science and Technology, Ames. Coll. of Education.
An overview is presented of a 3-year project focused on the development and demonstration of an interactive teaching improvement model that was research-based and used electronic technology. Though the primary goal was to improve the preparation of preservice teachers in elementary and secondary education, it was hoped the materials could be used with practicing teachers. Emphasis was placed on developing sensitivity to several fundamental teaching behaviors, first by describing them in research-based monographs, and then by showing them in interactive videotapes. An interactive computer-video teaching assessment program was developed which featured modules providing an encapsulated view of teaching. The modules provided meaningful laboratory work to augment and build upon the material covered in the lecture portion of the teacher education course. The objective was to build the skill of observation and assessment of teaching behavior. This report describes how the program was developed and implemented and its major outcomes. A practice profile is included as well as a Program Assessment Report, which summarizes the major questions addressed through the project, major features of the program, the target groups, and methods and instruments used in data-gathering. Appendices provide more detailed information on key features of the project. (JD)
