Teacher Training in Instructional Technology.
Of the major professional groups, there is probably none that is as undertrained as teachers. For this reason, teachers and administrators will be responsive to relevant, superior training, especially if it helps them to perform with a greater competence and sense of achievement. A quantum jump can probably be made in the use of technology if the on-the-cheap approach to the training of teachers is abandoned. In a sense, teacher educators, administrators and classroom teachers are so hungry for ways to improve their professional skills, that they could be captured by relevant professional training programs. This paper purports to offer strategies and concrete suggestions to improve preservice and inservice training, so that educators acquire new competencies relating to instructional television. It takes it for granted that technology improves teaching, and that instructional technology of high caliber will be available and easily accessible to teachers and administrators. (Author/GO)
