Better Practices for Recruiting T&E Teachers
Love, Tyler S.; Love, Zachary J.; Love, Kevin S.
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v76 n1 p10-15 Sep 2016
The declining number of Technology and Engineering (T&E) educators and teacher preparation programs across the country has been identified as a critical issue plaguing the field for many years (Daugherty, 1998; Volk, 1993). Unfortunately, this issue continues to progress and has raised concerns. Why should middle and high school T&E educators be concerned? The answer is simple: teachers have been identified as the most influential factor in encouraging students to pursue T&E education as a career. Without current educators helping universities to recruit future T&E teachers, many programs face the grim reality of closure for enrollment and budgetary reasons. This article presents 14 strategies supported by research and recent recruitment efforts that teachers should use to encourage students to become T&E educators.
