Redesigning the Preparation of All Teachers within the Framework of an Integrated Program Model
Hardman, Michael L.
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v25 n4 p583-587 May 2009
It is incumbent on universities to reflect current research on effective teacher preparation and respond to the changing needs of the 21st century. These needs include the knowledge and skills to instruct diverse students; an increasing emphasis on standards and an integrated curriculum model; and the call for all educators to work together to improve the performance of students. In the spring of 2006, University of Utah set out to restructure its teacher programs. The design phase of this restructuring was completed in 2008, and the first cohort of teacher candidates has entered the program.
