The Process and Outcomes of a Constituent-Based Teacher Education Research Agenda-Building Program.
Hall, Gene E.
A description is presented of the development of a National Research Agenda on Teacher Education. A constituent-based governance structure was established for the project. Teacher education across a continuum was reviewed, and seven key topic areas were identified. The key topics were: content, process, professionals as learners, collaboration, context, research, and change/dissemination. A conceptual framework was then developed to examine relevant issues. Immediate outcomes of the agenda-building process and issues for future research and policy analysis include: (1) not all aspects of a constituent-based effort are positive; (2) constituent-based efforts cost more and benefits are not always present; (3) teacher education has a critical momentum at present, and (4) there is a need for continuing development and nurturing of this momentum.
