Orr, Betsy
Online Submission, US-China Education Review A v3 n6 p381-384 Jun 2013
A SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis of a teacher education program, or any program, can be the driving force for implementing change. A SWOT analysis is used to assist faculty in initiating meaningful change in a program and to use the data for program improvement. This tool is useful in any undergraduate or degree program. Strengths and weaknesses are revealed and adjustments to curriculum, internships, learning activities, education policies, etc., are justifiable if based on a SWOT analysis of a program. Major improvements to a program can be a direct result of using this analysis with undergraduate and graduate students.
