Grappling with Big Ideas: The Process of Program Improvement
Mueller, Jennifer J.; Wisneski, Debora B.; File, Nancy
Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, v31 n1 p71-85 2010
The process for change undertaken by one early childhood teacher preparation program is described. While the changes were spurred in part by increasing emphases on standards and assessment systems, faculty noted concerns with how this framed the program and with how students negotiated learning in this system. After describing these concerns, the approach to change, utilizing the concept of big ideas, is discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
