Inservice Education of Teachers; Research Summary 1966-S1.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Research Div.
Half of this research survey consists of a descriptive discussion of inservice education. It limits itself to "those systematic programs designed to aid the classroom teacher" which are promoted by school systems, government agencies, professional associations, or colleges. The need for inservice education is discussed, and procedures for establishing such programs are outlined. Nineteen practices, such as workshops, field trips, and teacher exchanges, are listed and described; and common barriers to inservice programs are noted. Research summary sections on "Studies of Inservice Education Practices,""Evaluation," and "Improving Inservice Education" discuss and relate about 20 research studies, most of them published since 1960. General trends and practices are noted throughout. Tables present the results of 3 recent Research Division studies. A bibliography lists 54 items on all phases of inservice education, most of them published in journals since 1960. (JS)
