Teaching, A Profession for Amateurs? Building Research/Practice Linkages via Informal Field-Based Training Activities for Teachers.
Coleman, Peter
Ways of implementing educational innovations produced by research into practice in the schools are considered. It is stated that the most effective tool for accomplishing this is inservice teacher education. The characteristics of an exemplary inservice teacher education program are outlined and discussed. The suggestion is made that teacher centers are potentially the most important link between university- produced research and changed practices in the schools, and that a consortium of university-teacher center-public school would be desirable.
