Key Points in the Core Curriculum of Teacher Training: The Contribution of the Educational Sciences to the Professionalization of Teachers
Stubig, Heinz
European Education, v36 n1 p11-22 Spr 2004
This paper presents the key points in the core curriculum of teacher training. These key points describe a rough conceptual framework for action with a view to reforming university teacher training. The ideas, competences, and general themes and the academic work forms mentioned in this paper must be tailored by the individual universities on their own initiative, that is, the proposed forms and contents must be concretized to fit the particular conditions in each case so that future teachers will, in their basic university training, be able to attain the mandatory standards for theoretical and practical abilities. It will be crucial to lay down evaluation criteria and procedures to test whether these standards have been attained. This paper ends with a call to the competent political and academic decision makers to grant educational science an appropriate status in the teacher-training curriculum, insofar as it is the core of the specialized training for the profession of teacher, and to provide the necessary resources to this effect.
