What College and University Leaders Can Do To Help Change Teacher Education. Advancing the Agenda for Teacher Education in a Democracy: A Guide for College and University Leaders.
Edmundson, Phyllis J.
This booklet outlines several conclusions about teacher education, socialization, and certification taken from "Teachers for Our Nation's Schools" by John I. Goodlad. They form the basis of a call-to-action for college and university leaders. The process of changing teacher education must begin with college and university leaders giving serious thought to basic questions about institutional commitment, curriculum, supportive structures, students, and plans for action. The whole institution must be involved in the change process; this includes the governing board, the president and academic vice-president or provost, the arts and sciences dean, the education dean, and the faculty. Recommendations are detailed for each of these administrators. (IAH)
