Preservice/Inservice Training Options for Rural School Personnel. Rural Education Fact Sheet.
Hoyt, Margaret A., Ed.
Because of the special nature of teaching in a rural environment, teachers in these areas need alternative approaches to preservice and inservice training. Approaches to preservice education for rural teachers include: (1) the field-centered or field-based practicum in which the student lives and teaches in a rural community; (2) recruiting teachers from among local people; and (3) the teacher exchange program which combines preservice and inservice training. Methods of implementing inservice training include: (1) traditional staff training; (2) a field-based professor who goes into the rural community to teach graduate-level courses; (3) cadre training in which a core group of educators is trained to provide assistance to other educators; (4) self-instructional materials; (5) television and satellite technology; and (6) satellite radio.
