Research-Based Teacher Education.
Peters, William H.
There is an emerging research base on teacher effectiveness that should be used in redesigning teacher education programs. However, the complexity of teaching and learning does not permit simple solutions to complex problems. Several studies, projects, and programs with the goal of conducting research for teacher education programs are discussed. A major responsibility of teacher preparation programs is to provide a context for rendering professional judgments. Structures to encourage constant updating of the knowledge base must be developed within teacher education institutions. On-going research projects need to be developed in which faculties are actively involved in preservice programs. Research, designed to diagnose and develop teaching potential within teacher education candidates, should focus on the examination of both optimum generic teaching strategies and teaching styles for specific levels and areas of education.
