Beyond Field-Based Teacher Education: The Concept of Responsive Inservice Education. Occasional Paper Series No. 5.
Schroeder, Gary; Price, William O.
Field-responsive inservice education represents a program by which a college of education faculty goes into the field and forms collaborative relationships with individual schools, providing inservice training to teachers in the form of a graduate course, generally leading toward a master's degree. The university field team has access not only to students, but also to real-life situations and children, therefore instruction has direct relevance to actual practice. The major concern in the program is not only the transmission of knowledge and skills, but also the solving of educational problems. This report examines the program and discusses the issues and problems for both the university faculty and the teacher participant. (JD)
