A National Agenda for Research and Development in Teacher Education. 1979-1984.
Hall, Gene E., Ed.
This report summarizes the activities and outcomes of a planning project responsible for delineating and determining priorities of crucial, researchable issues in teacher education. The following considerations were made: (1) What does research and development suggest for the content of preservice, induction, and inservice teacher education? (2) What are the present perspectives on the design and delivery of teacher education? (3) What does present research and theory say about teachers and teacher educators as learners? (4) How do the various roles and various substantive and process areas work interactively to design, deliver, and assess teacher education? (5) How do social, political, economic, and cultural realities affect teacher education and how can theory and research address these realities? (6) What are present strategies, promises, and limitations of research for contributing to the design, development, and evaluation of teacher education? and (7) How can research knowledge and products be shared collaboratively and effectively with constituent groups and how can practical application to improve real-world teacher education practice be facilitated?
