|Face-to-Face Training in a Conventional Preservice Programme: A Case Study at Edgewood College of Education in South Africa (CIE, 2002, 36 p.)|
The Edgewood College of Education Teacher Education programme of face-to-face interaction is successful in that the pass rates and throughput rates are high. The programme operates from a well-resourced and supportive learning environment with very good facilities and resources. All parts work to enhance the teacher education programme. However this programme is very costly.
With the incorporation of the colleges into universities and technicons, there will be many programmes which will offer teacher education in a face-to-face manner. This will mean changes at the level of the organisation, curriculum, staff and students. The issues raised in Section 9 of this paper could be useful in developing and designing the teacher education programmes.
