Science of Education and Teacher Education.
De Corte, Erik
The application of a scientific attitude to the field of education is reviewed, with particular regard to the varying perspective concerning the cognitive development and learning processes of children. Flaws in the "top-down" system of research and information dissemination, in which universities are viewed as "producers" and practitioners as "consumers," are examined. The practice of implementing educational objectives in curriculum development plans is questioned, and discussion of a pluralistic view of teaching methods is presented. The conclusion is drawn that the science of education contributes significantly to the development of data relevant to improved teacher education. (LH)
