Modernization of the Teachers' Further Education System. (Based on the Experience from Czechoslovakia, Soviet Union, and Poland). Further Education of Teachers Collection of Papers, Reports and Reviews. Volume 1.
Petracek, Svatopluk, Ed.; And Others
The articles in this collection present the views of teacher educators in Czechoslovakia, Poland, and the Soviet Union on inservice, or "lifelong" teacher education. The first section contains five essays: (1) a new teachers' training project in Czechoslovakia; (2) further education of teachers and educational personnel in the Czechoslovak system of education; (3) teachers and the new conception of basic schools; (4) ways of improving the system for teachers' further education; and (5) some problems in the initial training and further education of teachers. In the second section of the volume, reports on activities and symposia of the European Information Centre for Further Education of Teachers (EIC-FET), located in Prague, Czechoslovakia, are presented. The Centre was begun in 1973 at the Charles University (Prague, Czechoslovakia) as an information clearinghouse and analytical center. Although essentially national in scope, EIC-FET cooperates with international organizations such as the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. The articles in this section discuss: (1) EIC-FET's information subsystem "Further Education of Teachers"; (2) an international symposium on preschool education (Prague, 1976); (3) an international conference of advisors on the research and information priorities for the further education of teachers (Prague, 1977); (4) an international symposium on the further education of special school teachers (Prague, 1977); (5) an international symposium on the further education of teachers in the use of educational technology (Prague, 1977); and (6) an international survey on the effective use of educational media and further education of teachers (Prague, 1977).
