Restructuring Teacher Education for Career Switchers.
Ryan, Patricia M.; Spangler, Shirley
This paper describes an Otterbein College (Ohio) master's degree program which is designed to provide an alternative route to teacher certification for individuals who have earned a baccalaureate degree and have later decided to become teachers. Three features make this program unique: (1) with the exception of the full-time, 16-week teaching internship, it is a part-time program designed to accommodate the working adult; (2) the liberal arts theme is the focus of the curriculum; and (3) course content is creatively matched with field and clinical experiences. A brief description is given of each of the nine required courses. The clinical component of each course is outlined. (IAH)
