Inservice Teacher Education in California: Views of Teachers. Occasional Paper No. 2.
Joyce, Bruce; Birdsall, Les
Results of a state survey of inservice teacher education practices and problems in California indicate general dissatifcation with present programs. It was indicated that there is very little job-related or job-embedded inservice education, and most of the important options for providing training are not being utilized. The formal structure of school district and college related inservice practices appears to be much less effective than the help teachers give to one another. Respondents were favorably inclined toward collaborative governance of inservice education and for the establishment of local inservice organizations (such as teacher centers) in which teachers, community members, professors, and school district officials together develop goals, procedures, and ways of solving problems such as providng time for training and relating inservice education more closely to the need for improved competence.
