Abstract
  • This study was set up to examine selected aspects of the knowledge of welding metallurgy that is a part of the background of present teacher educators who teach welding courses for Industrial Arts majors. Specifically this study was made to answer the following questions: 1. What knowledge is now possessed by college welding instructors as it applies to the field of welding metallurgy? 2. What knowledge is needed by college welding instructors as revealed by their own opinions? 3. What basis can be established for the selection of principles of welding metallurgy to be included in welding courses for Industrial Arts teachers at the college level. A review of significant literature revealed that this survey is unprecedented in the field of education. The college teachers responding to this survey favor improving the technical and theoretical level of the college and university welding courses conducted for Industrial Arts teacher education majors. Only a few of the teacher education institutions have specific courses in metallurgy yet many indicate metallurgical theory desirable. Teachers participating in this study favor the welding course that has approximately two-thirds laboratory and one-third lecture. Participants have shown a preference for some textbooks and reference books with as many as eighteen teachers out of the 58 participating in the survey using the same textbook. The recommendations for further research include the following: (1) Additional study of the laboratory exercises and requirements to see if these are in harmony with course objectives; (2) a survey of the course outlines -- including the study schedule -- to evaluate the technical level of required study; (3) and a survey of the other states to compare aspects of metallurgical knowledge that teacher educators of welding courses possess at the present time in relation to what recognized educators feel teachers should possess.
