Developing a quality programme is important because it is now a prerequisite for quality management and national competitiveness. However, the process of programme development and improvement is problematic. This is the case, in part, because programme developers are not educationists. Using an educational perspective, outlines a conceptual model that will aid management educators to reflect critically on programme quality issues during design or review phases.

Abstract

Purpose

To increase support for teacher education programs in colleges and universities through the development of the curriculum materials center (CMC).

Design/methodology/approach

Through statistics drawn from a student survey and departmental records of the C.W. Post CMC, along with the perspective of the author, the development of a CMC as support for a teacher education program is explored. The paper provides insight into various necessary collections and services that the center should offer.

Findings

General historical information is offered. The paper also provides information on key collections found in a CMC. Successful approaches to development and creative application of instruction are discussed.

Practical implications

This paper provides clear and useful information, including but not limited to suggested author lists, a professional collection bibliography, and software ideas. The objective is to improve the development, functionality and service in a CMC.

Originality/value

Arguably, this study is the first to examine and promote in detail the CMC as support for teacher education programs in colleges and universities.
