Teachers Attaining New Roles in Research: A Challenge to the Education Community. Conference Series No. 4.
Shalaway, Linda; And Others
The Michigan State University Institute for Research on Teaching, an aggregate of public school teachers and full-time investigative personnel, came under review by a one-day conference of teachers, teacher organization representatives, educational researchers, and state and federal government officials. Discussion topics that arose from the Institute's operations and that were debated were primarily concerned with the currently abbreviated role the inservice teacher plays in educational research and policy-making. It was the concensus of the conference that teachers be utilized as research investigators. The exact duration and nature of this noninstructional role, and a design for the implementation of a large-scale collaborative system involving teachers and researchers, were included in the conference proceedings. The importance of teacher inclusion in decision-making processes was also discussed. The report of the conference includes six bibliographic references, a list of available documents relevant to the discussed issues, and a listing of the invited participants in the February 1978 conference.
