Teacher Perceptions of the Acceptability of Teacher Training Products. Research and Development Memorandum No. 141.
The study was designed to find out what kinds of teacher training products were considered most useful by teachers. Twenty-one teachers were asked to evaluate 125 teacher training products divided into various sets by objectives and complexity of training mode and skills required. There was fairly strong agreement on what products were good, with preference going to those that involved microteaching or other clinical practice, varied activities, and complex skills and training. These products tended to be more expensive and to have produced at research and development centers. The methodology used to determine teacher attitudes toward teacher training products is considered an acceptable model for future research, and the authors hope research will be done to determine acceptability of the products after use by teachers. (Statistical tables are included, as are sample questionnaires answered by teachers.) (CD)
