The Professional Development Needs of Academic Teachers Adding Career-Technical Education Licenses
O'Connor, Patrick J.
Journal of Career and Technical Education, v27 n1 p34-47 Spr 2012
This study reports the results on the needs of an emerging population of Career-Technical Education (CTE) teachers in Ohio. The purposes of the study were to determine the needs of the teachers and the effectiveness of the teacher education program they completed to add the CTE license. Twenty six academic teachers added a CTE license through a modified licensure program at Kent State University over a two year period from 2008-2010. The primary goal of the licensure program was to support the academic teachers in the transition from the academic to the CTE environment. Six data collection sources were used to determine the effectiveness of the program. A profile of the academic teacher was also identified. The results indicate that the academic teachers were successful and satisfied as they made the transition. The teachers also felt least competent in specific CTE competencies such as collaborating with employer/job sites, working with advisory boards and planning work-based learning instructional activities. Suggestions to assist the teachers were provided.
