Providing Leadership for Staff Development and Inservice Education. Professional Development 6.
Edelfelt, Roy, Ed.; Johnson, Margo, Ed.
Six papers on the current and future state of inservice teacher education are presented in this monograph. In the first paper, a futuristic approach to what will comprise an educated person in the years to come envisions holistic education with an emphasis upon service to humankind and realization of world peace. An examination of the fundamental needs of teachers in the second paper indicates that teachers need inservice programs that will provide an awakening interest in learning for its own sake, and encouragement for individual creativity. The third paper points out that the quality of the learning climate stems basically from the teacher's educational values. The fourth and fifth papers provide thoughts on positive images for schools of education. The final paper offers considerations on the continuous learning aspect of inservice education and the importance of federal commitment to staff development. (JD)
