Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Elementary school teachers--Training of--Iowa; Internet in higher education--Iowa;
One professor at the University of Northern Iowa decided to use a unique approach to teach her section of Elementary Curriculum. While five or six sections were taught in the traditional manner, one section, taught by Dr. Bonnie Johnson, and assisted by Dr. Dale Johnson, used an Internet-based, case methodology approach. In the Johnson class, students addressed issues that are facing teachers today; using technology, and communicating with students and faculty on other campuses. To accomplish this, students participated in an Internet course collaboration centered at the University of Virginia.
In evaluating the Johnson course, three questions were addressed. They are: Should case methodology be used in teacher education courses?, Should Interdisciplinary teaching be used as a focus for a teacher education course?, Should the Internet be used in teacher education courses?
