An Overview of Research in Teacher Education. Teacher Education Forum Series. Vol. 2, No. 4.
Turner, Richard L.
This document focuses on four main areas of research--training, placement, selection, and work success--in which information about teacher education can be categorized and discusses the relationships which exist between these categories. A review of recent research is integrated into the discussion, highlighting studies performed in these areas. Concluding remarks note that while the quality of research in teacher education has improved, more effective studies--such as long-term studies, selection studies based on stronger motivational indicators, and early screening studies of potential teachers--are needed to produce meaningful improvements in policies and practices in teacher education.
