Some Problems in In-Service Teacher Training.
The problems of motivation and evaluation in the inservice training of primary school techers of English at the Institute of Language in Education in Hong Kong are discussed. The Institute was founded with the goal of improving the standard of English and Chinese in the schools and the community and to facilitate bilingualism in the Colony. A description is given of inservice training programs established to improve the skills of teachers of both Chinese and English. Included in the description is a discussion on how the syllabi used in the schools were reformed and the development of a new syllabus for English. Problems involved in implementing effective inservice education for the reformed curriculum and syllabi are analyzed in the light of how the teachers reacted to inservice workshops and their attitudes toward an evaluation system used to critique their work and progress.
