Conducting Education Methods On-Line to Teachers on Emergency Certification.
Hirtle, Jeannine S.; McGrew-Zoubi, Robin; Lowery-Moore, Hollis
This paper is a mid-project report of a study being conducted of a block of education methods courses (i.e., courses on classroom management, content area reading, secondary methods, and the professional educator) for students seeking emergency certification. This block is being taught 80% asynchronously through the Internet and 20% synchronously in a classroom at Sam Houston State University (Texas). The target population is post-baccalaureate students who are employed under emergency certification in secondary school settings. Qualitative analysis techniques were applied to field notes, transcripts of computer-mediated discourse, project evaluations, and interviews with the professors and students. The findings of this study are presented by the administrator (immediate supervisor) and the two professors. The administrator's discussion addresses registration procedures, entrance requirements, online activities, student progress, and concerns about time required of faculty. The professors' comments highlight recruitment, financial aid, technical expertise of students, problems with students accessing the message boards, lesson design, and assessment. (Author/AEF)
