Continuing Education for Teachers - Issues and Strategies.
Canadian Teachers' Federation, Ottawa (Ontario).; British Columbia Univ., Vancouver.
Continuing education for teachers was the theme for the University of British Columbia Conference on Teacher Education, chosen because of growing concern with the question of what forms continuing education should take once all teachers hold degrees. The conference did not attempt to provide definitive answers to the questions: Is graduate study the only appropriate path to professional improvement? What new structures must be built, and what older structures altered to accommodate needed changes in continuing education for teachers? It did, however, open for discussion the issues and problems in continuing education and the strategies and delivery systems that are currently being tested. Conference topics included: continuing education for teachers--an unromantic view; the teacher association view; strategies for improving continuing education for teachers; readiness for teachers' centers; program development by teachers as a strategy for continuing education; recommendations for facilitating teacher learning; research, scholarship, and the continuing education of teachers; the open access study plan; developing short courses for teachers; continuing education diplomas; continuing education for teachers in rural settings; getting resources to teachers; and the who, what, and how of continuing education.
