Taiwan is equipped with many outstanding science and technology programmes. Besides, it has a policy to increase vocational/technical schools and their quality. All these conditions have made Taiwan an advanced-technology-oriented nation and also stimulated its economic growth. According to the Teacher Education Law promulgated in 1994, teachers have to pass a pre-examination, to fulfil one year of teaching practice and then, to pass post practicum examination to become qualified teachers in Taiwan. The field, to be called "living technology" instead of "industrial arts," will have a new national curriculum from 1998. Clarifying the content of teaching practice and its process for trainee teachers is very important. This paper defines the content of the teaching practice for trainee teachers. DELPHI and a questionnaire were used. Finally, its model was developed by means of the evaluation of experts. The development of instruments for the evaluation of teaching practice is the subject of the following study.
