Innovation in Teacher Education: An International; Perspective.
Klassen, Frank H., Ed.; And Others
This volume presents a sampling of major innovative programs in a broad range of teacher training institutions. A selection of 39 case studies focus on innovations in teacher education in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the United States. The case studies are selective; certain areas of the world were not canvassed; the majority of contributions came from the United States. Each study was particularistic; most changes emphasized specific components of a total program. Eight areas of innovation were studied, including 1) performance-based teacher education; 2) in-service education; 3) field centered teacher education; 4) educational media, technology and teacher education; 5) teacher education for rural transformation; 6) individualized teacher education; 7) integrated teacher education; and 8) innovation in teacher education at a national level. Each study section was provided with an introduction and three to eight case studies concerning the area of study. A summary of innovation and change in teacher education stressed the need for continual innovation for the survival, rather than the decoration of education. (MJM)
