Issues and Problems in Professional Development. A Review of Selected Literature Pertaining to the Recruitment and Initial, Inductive, and Inservice Education of Teachers.
Howey, Kenneth R.; And Others
This monograph provides a review of selected literature that addresses issues and problems in the preparation and continuing development of professional educators. The focus is upon relevant contextual and institutional factors that impinge upon professional development, and an examination is made of the literature related to the primary persons or individuals involved; i.e., pre- and inservice teachers and teacher educators. The curricula and instructional procedures that define professional development are delineated. The paper is organized to focus on four stages of professional development: (1) recruitment and selection; (2) preservice teacher education; (3) induction into teaching; and (4) inservice teacher education. Each stage is examined from the dual perspectives of contextual and institutional issues and concerns about individuals, and the curricular and program designs embedded in these stages. The literature reviewed includes research, and descriptive and analytical studies. An extensive bibliography is included. (JD)
