Post Certification Development of Teachers and Administrators.
Wallace, Richard C., Jr.
The continuing development of educational professionals (teachers and administrators) takes place in three types of institutions. Advanced degree programs offered in colleges and universities that lead to the master's and doctorate degrees are the mainstay of continuing development. Second in importance are the staff development programs sponsored by local education agencies and regional and state education agencies. Professional organizations also play an important role in the personal and professional development of teachers and administrators. This paper examines the role of local education agencies in inservice education and staff development. It includes a brief and selective review of the research on inservice education of teachers and administrators, and discusses the experience of the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, School District's research-based programs in staff development for teachers and administrators.
