A Review of Literature and Research on In-Service Training for Teachers with Emphasis on Vocational and Technical Teachers.
Ward, William G.
The purpose of this paper was to review recent literature and research on inservice training for vocational education teachers and to draw from that synthesis, elements influencing inservice training. Topics reviewed included: (1) Historical Overview, (2) Theoretical Framework, (3) Recent Programs, (4) Innovative Techniques, (5) Some Problems and Solutions, (6) Planning, and (7) Evaluation Systems. Some conclusions from the review were: (1) The entire process of inservice education is not routinized, (2) Teacher autonomy is a major issue in inservice training, (3) Educators are relying more on electronic equipment for inservice training, (4) Planning and evaluation systems are inadequate, and (5) The problems of who decides what should be taught still faces educators today. It was recommended that state-wide systems of planning and evaluation be developed and that the problem, who decides what should be taught, be investigated. (SB)
