Teachers' Professional Development. Teachers in Society Series.
Hughes, Phillip, Ed.
This book is the first in a series on teachers and teaching, a result of the Australian Council for Educational Research program of research on teachers. The theme, teachers in society, has been constructed around three broad areas: the context of teaching, teacher education, and teachers' work. The book is divided into 8 chapters as follows: (l) "A Reappraisal of Professional Development for Teachers" (Phillip Hughes); (2) "Teacher Development: Achievements and Challenges" (Cherry Collins); (3) "The Dependence of Teacher Development on Teacher Evaluation" (Michael Scriven); (4) "Teacher Development and the Teacher" (Bob Conners); (5) "Teaching, Teacher Thinking and Teacher Development" (Bevis Yaxley); (6) "Individual and Group Reflection as a Basis for Teacher Development" (John Baird); (7) "Distance Education and Teachers' Professional Development" (Terry Evans and Daryl Nation); and (8) "Government Policy for the Future Development of Teachers" (Ray Costello). Each chapter is supported by a list of references, and a general guide to further reading is supplied. (LL)
