New Patterns of Teacher Tasks. Educational and Psychological Interactions. Bulletin No. 51.
Rodhe, Birgit, Ed.; Gran, Bertil, Ed.
Commissioned by the Programme on Teacher Policies within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), a team of educators, school administrators, and research workers prepared this report aimed at demonstrating how new patterns of teacher tasks emerged from educational development work in the Malmo region of Sweden. Primarily, the Malmo activities focused on solving the essential problem of how to combine individualization of instruction with social education. The development work, carried out in close cooperation with a city-based educational development center and the research department of a school of education, showed the need for increased flexibility in the use of resources as well as in several activities of the school. New categories of personnel were introduced into the schools, and teachers had to learn to cooperate with them, making plans in teams with other teachers and with pupils. More stress was placed upon the pupils' social and emotional development, as well as upon the handling of new teaching aids. The report bases its analysis of emerging new patterns of teacher tasks upon descriptions of innovative situations and reports on developmental and research projects. (Author/JS)
