School Focused In-Service Education. Clarification of a New Concept and Strategy. Synthesis Report. In-Service Education and Training of Teachers: Towards New Policies.
Howey, Kenneth R.
Current thinking about and operational examples of school-focused inservice teacher education are synthesized. The primary data sources for this report were the ideas and materials shared in case studies conducted in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States. The report begins by examining how several writers have contributed to defining school-focused inservice and explores the various rationales they put forth which support this type of continuing education. The state of the art of school-focused inservice teacher education in various countries is also briefly reviewed. Next, several problems that appear with this type of inservice are examined along with some suggestions for their possible resolution. Some roles that each of the basic parties associated with inservice could assume in this improvement process are noted. The roles of teacher organizers, administrators, the government, and colleges are examined. Finally, the report examines teacher centers as they contribute to the concept of inservice. (JD)
