Teacher Education Development Service
Administrative History

Back to table of contents

From the mid-twentieth century, there were numerous attempts in several colleges and universities in the United States in the area of teacher education reform. Many experimental projects were launched in order to identify the least effective aspect of teacher training so as to change it while leaving all the other traditional parts intact. It was in this context that competency-based teacher education (CBTE) was developed along with the concomitant field-centeredness, cooperative decision making and constituency parity pointing the way to a method of teacher training that rests solely upon experience and knowledge while it moves to a radical concept and style. In an effort to meet the challenge of improving teacher preparation programs, the State University of New York at Albany proposed that a Center be founded in 1973. This Center would develop and make operational a competency-based teacher education program with the State University of New York at Albany. A Teacher Corps internship program in Schenectady, New York would further develop and modify the professional education and internship portions of the program. This Center would also help the New York State Department of Education to make thirteen trial projects fully operational schemes by providing materials, mediation, and consultants. The Center would also help in non-trial project teacher-training institutions to meet the New York State CBTE mandate by providing training, consultants, and materials for program development. The Center would also develop a statewide collaborative system of support for the development and functioning of teacher education in the CBTE mode.

It was in this context that the Teacher Education Development Service was founded in 1973 and funded under grant No. 300760034 jointly supported by the United States Office of Education, the State University of New York at Albany, and the New York State Department of Education. All policy decisions were made by a group which included a Bureau Chief of the New York State Department of Education who was officially designated to this post by the Division Director. The Teacher Education Development Service, or TEDS, presented conferences and workshops across the state, helping teacher-trainers to improve their programs. A number of object-specific training modes were developed and used during these activities. TEDS also developed a research library that provided materials and services to more than ninety individuals who represented institutions and programs. The meetings of representatives from the New York State Teacher Corps Network laid the groundwork for a statewide communications system in support of CBTE. The staff of TEDS participated in producing and presenting materials to aid both trial-project and non-trial-project sites develop a CBTE program. During 1975-1976, work continued to strengthen the ability of TEDS to service the institutions of New York State. In order to assess effectiveness and project need, both in-state and out-of-state, a research project was commenced entitled “Factors Affecting Institutional Development of CBTE programs.” A research team, composed of twelve professors from four departments in the School of Education at the State University of New York at Albany, designed and implemented a study sampling thirty-two colleges and forty programs of teacher preparation in New York State. The results of this research yielded data pertinent to the implementation of CBTE and the process of institutional program change. Two additional projects were subsequently added: one concerned the identification of characteristics of individuals who were applying for teacher certification in New York State. This study was undertaken to determine if new policies on teacher certification needed to be developed and new facilities constructed so as to keep pace with the evolution of teacher training and certification at large. The second project investigated the elements of program design within institutions in New York State and how these were perceived by staff that conducted program review at the Division of Teacher Education and Certification.
