Proposed Center for Research on Teacher Education. NIE Planning Grant, Final Performance Report.
Schwartz, Henrietta; And Others
This report describes plans for implementing a proposed center for research on teacher education. The proposal for the Center was a collaborative effort involving the 19 campuses of the California State University System to develop a national base for research on teacher education. The first section describes briefly the efforts undertaken to develop this proposal. The Center proposal is organized around four points of collaboration among scholars and practitioners. The Center would: (1) create a diverse and extensive field laboratory for research; (2) involve teacher education practitioners as collaborators in all of the research projects; (3) create research opportunities for practitioners and solicit questions of concern to them; and (4) provide research expertise to support the research activities generated by the practitioners. A framework for knowledge-based reform is constructed around the three stages of teacher education practice: recruitment, professional development, and induction. Section two of the report details plans for executing research projects. A set of planning premises are presented. These take into consideration the following factors: (1) social change; (2) core values; (3) the nature of schooling; (4) the changing role of teachers; (5) the interagency dependence of schools and institutions of higher education; and (6) the impact of technology on all of these factors. A seven-page list of references is appended. (JD)
