Project 30 and the Pedagogy Seminars: A Report to the Administration and Faculty.
Clark, Linda; And Others
Millersville University (PA) began its involvement in Project 30 in the summer of 1988. Through a variety of activities, the project team was committed to the improvement of preservice teacher education through the integration of liberal arts and professional education courses. This report describes the accomplishments of Project 30 and discusses future directions for improving teacher education and enhancing the climate for teaching excellence on campus. The report provides a compilation of several documents which together describe a variety of activities, successes and missteps of the last several years. The main body of the report describes the Pedagogy Seminar program, a 1-credit, optional seminar that supplements selected arts and sciences courses and is team taught by arts and sciences and teacher education faculty. Each seminar focuses on its accompanying arts and science course and its instructor as a "case study" in pedagogical content knowledge. With the faculty team, students analyze the teaching of a particular course and practice transforming course content for teaching. For developing a model to enhance the teaching profession and strengthening humanities foundations for teachers, the university was the recipient of the Christa McAuliffe Showcase for Excellence award and recognition from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
