Induction Experiences and Needs for Preparing Vo-Tec Instructors without Teacher Education Background.
Van Ast, John
A 2-year teacher preparation and induction process for faculty new to teaching is being implemented in Iowa's community colleges. The process includes a series of credit-earning seminars that are sequentially taught at predefined levels of competence and implemented in the teacher's classroom with the assistance of the master teacher and constructive feedback from the master teacher and students. Seminars are conducted through the Iowa State University College of Education. The teacher characteristics being taught were validated by 66 community college administrators and 177 faculty. The principal investigator, participant, participants' students, master teacher, and an external evaluator conduct formative and summative evaluation to assess seminar process and participants' success in their classrooms/labs. The appendixes include a table of exemplary community college teacher characteristics upon which the process is based. (Contains 10 references.) (YLB)
