(a) It is the intent of the Legislature that college and university faculty members who teach courses relating to teaching or administrative methods in programs of professional preparation that are approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing have direct knowledge of the way that public elementary and secondary schools function and operate.

(b) The Commission on Teacher Credentialing, in cooperation with public and private postsecondary institutions operating teacher education programs, shall develop standards and procedures which ensure that each faculty member who teaches a course relating to teaching methods in an approved program of professional preparation actively participates in public elementary or secondary schools and classrooms at least once every three academic years.

(c) The commission, in cooperation with public and private postsecondary institutions operating administrative services credential programs, shall develop standards and procedures which ensure that each faculty member who teaches a course relating to administrative methods as defined by the commission in an approved program of professional preparation actively participates in public elementary or secondary schools or classrooms at least once every three academic years.

(d) The commission shall exempt from this requirement faculty members whose primary assignments are in departments or schools other than education.
