Strategic Planning Document.
Illinois State Univ., Normal. Coll. of Education.
An outline is presented of long-term planning for the improvement of the College of Education at Illinois State University. Focus will be on instruction, research, and service. While a large percentage of effort will be allocated to instruction, a significant portion of personnel resources will be devoted to applied research and direct service to the education community beyond the university. Initial preparation programs will be research based and field oriented. General education, specialty studies, and the professional education components of the program will reflect the standards of learned societies and professional associations as well as the experience of master educators. Students will be expected to study liberally in disciplines which support their professional goals. An elementary school and a high school will serve as laboratories for the development of improved teaching and learning, and will constitute primary sites for efforts to test and apply knowledge about teaching and learning and to disseminate results. The transition from preservice student to teacher will be supported through induction programs. (JD)
