Panel Summaries from the National Conference on Studies in Teaching (June 16-20, 1974, Washington, D.C.).
National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This volume consists of abridged reports of the 10 panels that participated in a five-day conference in Washington during the summer of 1974. The primary objective of the conferenc was to provide an agenda for further research and development to guide the National Institute of Education in its planning and funding over the next several years. Both by the involvement of some 100 practitioners, administrators, and researchers as panelists, and by the public debate and criticism of the panel reports, the institute aims to create a major role for the practitioner and research communities in determining the direction of government funding. The conference panels were organized around the following major points in the career of a teacher: (1) the teacher's recruitment, selection, and retention (Panel 1); (2) training and performance, as approached from various perspectives (Panels 2-6); and (3) instructional personnel utilization (Panel 7). In addition, several special problem areas for planning and research were covered by another three panels. These were the role of the teacher in new instructional systems (Panel 8), research methodology (Panel 9), and theory development (Panel 10). Within its specific problem area, each panel refined its goal statement, outlined several approaches or overall strategies, identified potential programs within each approach, and outlined illustrative projects so far as this was appropriate and feasible.
