Some Priorities for Research and Development in Teacher Education (A Planning Report for the National Institute of Education).
Cyphert, Ted; And Others
This synopsis of a symposium on priorities for research and development in education was intended as a planning report for the National Institute of Education. The members of the symposium suggested that the following research and development efforts be undertaken: a) an analysis of the data base for teacher education; b) an analysis of the difference between the standard practice and the best practice of teacher education; and c) the development of a concise, systematic terminology to describe teacher education so that research and development priorities may be set and projects carried out in ways that encourage conceptual understanding and information exchange. It was recommended that the National Institute of Education perform the following functions: a) the packaging and dissemination of research and development products; b) the pilot testing of programs before they are implemented on a national basis; c) the clarifying of the roles of the teaching profession, universities, and federal agencies in national policy setting and implementation; and d) the long-range futuristic planning for research and development efforts.
