New Patterns of Teacher Education and Tasks; Country Experience. Sweden.
Marklund, Sixten; And Others
This collection of three reports by Swedish educators deals with problems of educational change posed by new patterns of teacher education and tasks at primary and secondary levels. The reports are preceded by Marklund's introduction, "The Background to Questions Concerning New Patterns of Teacher Education and Tasks." The first report, "Research and Innovation in Teacher Education," by Marklund and Gran, focuses on the development of teacher education in Sweden after World War II, and how educational research has facilitated renewal and innovation. "The Working Conditions of Teachers: A Case Study," by Bodell, examines conditions in both old and new types of schools. The study resulted from a government survey to determine whether implementation of various reforms would increase the teacher's working time. "New Patterns of Teacher Tasks: A Report on Experience in the Malmo Region," by Rodhe and Gran, looks at regional activities aimed at combining individualization and social education to achieve the main objectives of education. This report reviews new patterns of teacher tasks, such as changes in personnel organization and role division within schools. (JS)
