A Contemporary Preservice Technology Education Program
Flanigan, Rod; Becker, Kurt; Stewardson, Gary
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v72 n2 p25-29 Oct 2012
In order to teach engineering education, today's engineering and technology education teachers must be equipped with lesson plans to teach engineering design, among other principles, to the 6th-12th grade levels. At Utah State University (USU), curriculum has been developed for preservice engineering and technology education teachers that demonstrates and reinforces how engineering principles can play an integral role in the technology education classroom. As the body of technology and engineering education scholars continues to debate, review, discuss, analyze, and design curriculum and programs for the improvement of the discipline, it is important to remember that, with the incredible speed of technological evolution, change will continue to be the norm. It is incumbent upon educators to adapt to and accommodate this evolutionary process. (Contains 2 figures.)
