Proceedings of the CCTG Round-Table Discussions on the Professional Development of Canadian Teachers of German (Calgary, Alberta, Canada, April 22-24, 1994).
Enns, Esther, Ed.; Jahn, Juergen, Ed.
The overall theme of the round-table discussions at a conference of the Canadian Council of Teachers of German (CCTG) was the cooperation of regional teacher associations and creation of a professional development network. An introductory section describes the project through which the round-table discussions were organized, the structure of the discussions, discussion topics, and goals. Subsequently, the three phases of the proposed round-table discussions are outlined: (1) a reflective phase geared to defining problem areas and organizing topics, during which six focal points for each topic were identified (qualifications of professional developers, initiation of development activities, linking professional development and teaching practice, alternative development structures, financing models, survival through renewal); (2) responsibility for use of discussion results for each topic; and (3) first measures to encourage the shift to regional professional development. In the latter category, results are reported for each participating region. Lists of regional and national associations and of conference participants are appended. (MSE)
