The Teacher Education Curriculum: A Computer-Assisted Process for Informed Decision-Making.
Levin, James; And Others
This report describes a computer assisted process that resulted in the development of a comprehensive database of actual courses taken by undergraduates in teacher preparation programs for use in decision making about possible curriculum redesign for teacher education majors. The creation of the database required four stages: (1) selecting majors from the College of Education and other academic areas corresponding to one of the College of Education majors for analysis and comparison; (2) defining majors and dividing them into subject categories; (3) classifying majors in terms of subject category courses, courses taken but not categorized, and required courses not taken; and (4) describing majors in terms of individual student credit information. While the primary focus of the present study was to compare the actual consumed curriculum of teacher education with their counterparts in other colleges, the database created from the study could be useful to a variety of audiences depending on the issues or questions to be addressed. Sample data are presented in four tables and three figures. (DB)
