Organization For Inservice Teacher Education: A Perspective From Higher Education.
Howey, Kenneth R.
Institutions of higher education can be organized as viable and vital contributors to inservice teacher education programs. A critical reexamination of the relationship between preservice and inservice training is needed. Inservice is only one part of a continuing education process, which should be organized both within and between schools and colleges for maximum effect. Resources are often limited and must be amplified and used efficiently. The following strategies could be explored: (1) development of periodic program prototypes for improving training and curriculum materials; (2) improved application and assistance in using electronic technology for inservice; and (3) design of programs for training teacher educators. Cooperative efforts between colleges and departments of education should lead to formal relationships, benefiting both parties. (FG)
