Yang, Tian-ping
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 1 p117-125 2011
Thanks to China's reform and opening to the world over the last three decades, the conventional normal education system, which is characterized by independent orientation, is now being challenged by a comprehensive and multi-faceted modern teacher education system that has taken shape. It is high time that we attached great significance to the solution of the ensuing problems. As far as pre-vocational teacher education is concerned, we should improve the training mode, prolong the educational time and strengthen the practice. As for post-job teacher education, we should promote the integration of teacher education, and concentrate on the improvement of the educator's quality and the legal construction of post-job teacher education. Pertaining to teachers' qualification authentication, we should enhance the vocational requirements, update the test content and test form, and innovate the teacher certificate system and updating system. With regard to teacher educational evaluation, we should build special evaluation system of teacher education quality, and improve the accreditation system of teacher education institution. On the aspect of teacher education security, we should further open the teacher education, strengthen the subjectivity of normal colleges and universities, and maintain a relatively independent teacher education organizational system. As for free education for students in teacher education program, with a view to keeping abreast with the time, we should offer more privileges to invite more excellent students to choose education as their primal majors, and to encourage normal students to treat teaching job as a lifelong vocation.
