Concepts of Teacher Centers.
Joyce, Bruce R.; Weil, Marsha
This report reviews the literature that is pertinent to a broad understanding of the teacher center concept and to the specific problems of designing a teacher center. Emphasis is placed on the origins, themes, methods of operation, and future plans for teacher centers. The origins include the revolution in teacher training underway in England, the stress placed on ongoing in-service teacher training in the United States, and the movement toward competency-based teacher education and certification. The major themes stress the felt needs of the teacher, a school improvement thrust, and a need to increase teacher competency. Three styles of operating teacher centers are discussed: the informal English style, the corporate style, and the competency-oriented style. A 29-item bibliography is included. (MJM)
