Faculty Development for Inservice Education in the Schools.
Kersh, Bert Y.; And Others
Ideas and recommendations emerging from three regional workshops on staff development are presented. The workshops, conducted in early 1978, focused on three aspects of faculty development for inservice: the identification and and analysis of current and likely future staff development in colleges and universities whose mission in elementary and secondary school is to assist in the continuing education of practicing teachers; an expansion of awareness among college and university faculty on the state of the scene in inservice education and the roles they can assume in the process; and the provision of examples different colleges and universities have used in providing staff development services. The monograph is divided into seven sections, excluding introductory remarks. Section one considers various meanings of the term "faculty development," and places focus on the provision of more effective job-imbedded inservice education to school personnel. Section two examines the nature and impact of total institutional contexts, local school and community contexts, and state contexts upon the provision of staff development efforts. Section three reports on critical development needs, and section four relates those needs to components of inservice education. Section five details the search for exemplary programs of faculty development for inservice education. Section six presents a college-wide approach to the problem, and section seven presents recommendations and conclusions drawn from the regional workshops. (MJB)
