Description

The study was designed to determine the preparedness of a cohort of career and technical teachers to meet the requirements of the contemporary classroom. Using the field-based, competency-based alternative teacher education model operated by Temple University, it was determined that Temple University's career and technical education teachers felt well prepared to meet the challenges of the contemporary classroom. It was also evident that there were both similarities and differences in how teachers in academic disciplines and teachers in career and technical fields perceived their readiness to teach the next generation of students. Indicators in the study further suggest that there may be identifiable pedagogical competencies that could provide a framework for developing the curriculum for career and technical teacher education.
