36 VIDBE-Q Volume 63 Issue 3 Over the last two years, the TVI Consortium program moved from the vision stage to the development stage and then to the implementation phase. Two design teams of state and national experts were formed and members recruited from across the state to develop all key components of the program. The curriculum design team was comprised of representatives from the prospective partner institutions. The task of this group was to map out the curriculum for the program including course identification, syllabi development, identify key program assessments and subsequent CEC standards alignments. An external facilitator guided and supported the efforts of this team. The field and practicum design team was comprised of representatives from numerous State Support Teams, Ohio Department of Education, Education Service Centers, teachers of the visually impaired, Institutional field placement personnel, early childhood intervention specialists, the Ohio Deans Compact and other resource personnel. This team was charged with identifying field and practicum requirements to be embedded into the program. Figure 1. Teacher of Visually Impaired Consortium Ohio Deans Compact LISD Collaborative logo.
