Teachers' Centres and the Changing Curriculum, A Report on Three National Conferences.
Britton, E. L.
This is a report of three conferences concerned with teacher centres in England and Wales. It concentrates on the major points of agreement and disagreement among the participants concerning teacher centres. The major points of agreement were: that the main concern of the centres was with development work that was local, that the centres existed for teachers and organization of the centres would reflect teacher views, that activities in the centres satisfy needs of teachers in their groups, and that the centres have suitable facilities for operation. Points of disagreement included how the centres should be used, the demand for release time by teachers, the question of inservice training or curriculum development, and the role of the centre warden. Many questions for the future were raised. Some concerned the changing roles of the centres, staffing and available materials at centres, the links between the local centres and regional organizations, communication of activities in teacher centres, and the roles of teachers in the centres.
