Innovation in In-Service Education and Training of Teachers--Netherlands.
Deen, Nathan; Boeder-Rijdes, Elisabeth S.
This report examines the innovations in inservice education and the training of teachers in the Netherlands. Section One deals with inservice education and training of teachers (INSET) in relationship to Dutch education. The Dutch educational system is discussed along with various aspects of teaching, issues pertaining to education, and the role INSET plays in the Dutch educational network. Section Two discusses and analyzes four case studies that have utilized some aspect of INSET activities. They include a television course, an experimental counselor training program at Utrecht University, the role of INSET in the creative arts, and a program for reorientation in mathematics teaching in vocational schools. Section Three proposes several conclusions in regard to the four case studies discussed in Section Two. It was also concluded that INSET has to be a voluntary act of the individual teachers in the Dutch school system and should not by any means be imposed upon them. An appendix contains a description of support (teacher) centers in the Netherlands. (SK)
