Staff Development Through the Teacher Education Center Concept.
DeShields, Shirley M.; And Others
The concept of teacher education is broadened to include the transmission of effective, realistic, and contemporary education from classroom teacher to pupil. The tools necessary for this transmission are made available in a staff development program initiated by the Institute of Educational Development (IED). The program uses workshops, practice sessions, resource preparation sessions, direct experience clinics, and seminars to familiarize pre- and in-service teachers with improved teaching skills and flexible learning approaches to stimulating attitude change. These program goals lead to constant evaluation and adjustment in order to meet a realistic and applicable approach to education. (Appendix A presents the span of staff development activities from February 1969 to April 1971; appendixes B and C present graphs of the program's density and potential; and appendix D gives a brief description of IED, with stress on development and implementation.)
