Title:Perceptions of Teacher Education Programs at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Author(s):Cooper, Sydney N; Balk, Megan R
Contributor(s):Dean, Sheila R
Abstract:Teacher Quality has become the primary focus of K-12 schools in the United States, including focus on the quality of pre-service education programs. By collecting data on teacher perceptions of their pre-service preparation programs, the quality of these programs can be assessed. This study will assess the following questions: From graduation to the first one to five years of teaching, what are the teacher perceptions on the effectiveness of their teacher preparation programs, for teachers from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Are there differences in teacher perceptions from graduates of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign? Are there differences among different programs in education, i.e., Elementary and Special Education? This study from February to April 2016 will include tabulations and the analysis of recent survey data collected after the completion of their program, as well as one to five years after graduation from teachers who graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Studies like this can provide insight into the effectiveness of current teacher preparation programs based on teacher perceptions as well as suggest program improvements for the future.
