Significant Inservice Delivery System Designs for Geographically Isolated School Personnel.
Johnson, Maniza A.
The problems facing teacher centers in geographically remote and largely rural areas are discussed. The importance of cooperative planning involving teachers and university faculty is stressed. It is noted that implementing professional development activities depends to a great extent upon the efficiency of inservice delivery systems, and particular emphasis is placed upon effective communication between all participants. Personal contact is considered a vital component of successful teacher centers. It is suggested that a telecommunications system between the university and geographically distant centers can be a valuable tool in maintaining this contact. A description is given of a teacher center network in Montana which incorporates diverse techniques for unifying the efforts of the university and thirty teacher centers. (JD)
