An Update: Preparation and Credentialing Requirements of Two-Year College Technical Instructors--A National Study
Olson, Susan J.; Spidell, Cathy M.
Journal of Industrial Teacher Education, v44 n4 p42-61 Win 2007
This study was conducted to see what changes have occurred in the preparation and credentialing of postsecondary technical faculty. The specific objectives of this study were: (a) to describe current credentialing requirements for two-year college technical instructors; (b) to describe program requirements for postsecondary technical teacher education programs; and (c) to compare changes that have occurred since prior studies. Since 1990 there has been a decline in the number of states that have credentialing requirements--down from 19 to 11 in 2006. The number of programs that prepare postsecondary technical faculty appears to be stable at a time of anticipated shortage of two-year technical faculty. (Contains 6 tables.)
