Bozeman, Laura A.; Brusegaard, Callie M.; McCulley, Robert M.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v112 n1 p112-118 Jan-Feb 2018
A key factor in promoting the outcomes described in the mission statement of the National Plan for Training Personnel (NPTP) to Serve Children with Blindness and Low Vision is the teacher. Specifically, knowledge of subject matter tied to national standards along with effective pedagogy can positively influence student learning. For aspiring teachers in the vision profession, access to personnel preparation programs can be a challenge. This report examines the 25-year evolution and outcomes of the University of Massachusetts Boston (UMB's) Vision Studies program and the Northeast Resource Center for Vision Education (NERCVE) based on interpretation and implementation of NPTP recommendations.
