Sharing Teacher Education Curricula Electronically.
Harry, Vickie; Brown, Lisbeth; McCullogh, John
Pennsylvania's Clarion University plans to implement an electronic visit for the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education's (NCATE's) 2003 continuing accreditation visit. The College of Education and Human Services is committed to selecting and graduating outstanding candidates who are empowered with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to assume responsibility for the exercise of professional judgment and continued professional growth to meet the needs of diverse students in a changing society. It is developing a conceptual framework which defines the preparation of effective, dedicated, and competent professionals. Learners are the center of the conceptual framework, emphasizing individual variations, cultural diversity, and societal influences. The framework identifies the process of knowledge construction, authentic learning and assessment, and learning interactions and includes learners outcomes (professionalism, decision making, and life long learning). Part of the 2003 NCATE accreditation process includes creating a Web site for electronic distribution of materials. The university is also revising student teaching guidelines. Student teachers will prepare electronic portfolios as evidence of program outcomes. They will be required to post assignments to their personal Web sites for inclusion in the electronic portfolios. The university is planning to develop electronic exhibits related to technology use in data collection. (SM)
