New Patterns of Teacher Education and Tasks: Teachers as Innovators.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This is a collection of six papers concerning teachers as innovators. The first is entitled, "The Types of Environment Most Likely to Favour the Active and Effective Participation of Teachers in Educational Innovation." It is concerned with the commitment of the teacher to permanent participation in the adaptation of the education system in the changing context of the professional activity of teaching. It answers two questions: (1) What structures of support and incentives will best help teachers to engage effectively in educational innovation? and (2) What mechanisms of participation, dialogue, and confrontation will best facilitate the implementation of education innovations. The second paper, "School-Based Curriculum Development and Teacher Education Policy" argues the case for school-based curriculum development, presents a model for school use of the curriculum development process, discusses objections to and difficulties encountered in school-based curriculum development and the implications of school-based curriculum development for teacher education. The third paper is about "Teachers' Centres--Some Reflections on the British Experience." The fourth paper, "The Teacher's Role in Curriculum Development: A French View," addresses the ambiguity of teacher education vocabulary and educational innovations. The fifth paper, "Teachers and New Teaching Techniques: Some French Experiences," points out that the introduction of new teaching techniques is essential as a means of responding to pupils' new demands. The sixth paper, "Teachers and School Buildings," describes the contribution of educators in the provision of new school buildings and the adaptation of existing ones and looks at measures needed to help teachers make full use of the school building as an educational tool.
