Morphet, Edgar L., Ed.; Jesser, David L., Ed.
This final volume in the Governors' Conference on Education for the Future series contains 13 papers prepared for the conference on preparing educators to meet emerging needs. The papers are presented in six chapters: papers in the first chapter focus on the educational implications of a changing society, including needed revision of educational practices (such as modes of thought about ability, motivation, and evaluation) and implications of change for teacher roles and preparation; papers in chapter 2 explore the need for teacher education programs to include university faculty and for a school-based approach to teacher education (as seen in experimental schools); papers in chapter 3 advocate the use of intensive group experiences to improve education at the high school, junior college, and college levels, and the application and use of instructional technology in teacher education; papers in the fourth chapter deal with the need for pre- and inservice staff development programs for professional school personnel excluding teachers; papers in chapter 5 consider a systems approach to develop teacher education programs that are relevant to the teacher's role and the need for effective use of communications technology in education; and the papers in the final chapter expose some problems of education, especially in urban areas and universities, and the need for increased relevance in schools.
