Traditional Yet Progressive: A Twist on Teacher Preparation
Hastings-Taylor, Juli
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v82 n6 p20-24 Sep 2007
At the University of Wisconsin-Stout (UW-Stout), students can work toward earning a Bachelor of Science in Career, Technical Education and Training (CTET) without leaving home. In the summer of 2006, UW-Stout's School of Education put a new twist on postsecondary career and technical teacher preparation; it began offering the 35-credit professional core of the degree online. The program targets individuals who are currently teaching in technical and community colleges and need to obtain their bachelor's degree. For UW-Stout, developing the online CTET curriculum was not a fly-by-night decision. As any major change causes a critical examination of current practices, beliefs and goals, so did the process of developing CTET courses for online delivery. This article takes a look at how teachers at UW-Stout collaborate with their students through the online course. Details on the program's development, implementation, and evaluation are also presented in this article.
