Research Utilization Strategies for Preservice and Inservice Teacher Educators.
Marsh, David D.
The theme developed in this paper is that major improvements could be made in the research acquisition and utilization process for preservice teacher educators and that this improvement would constitute important faculty development. Efforts to improve the way professors acquire and utilize research on teaching must be based on two assumptions: that the body of research is adequate and that it is available to them. This paper begins with an exploration of these two assumptions. It then turns to the way preservice teacher educators and school district-based inservice teacher educators acquire and utilize this body of research. Similarities and differences in research acquisition and utilization for professors and district-based inservice educators are explored. Training as a vehicle for research acquisition and utilization is considered, and the role of networks in research utilization and institutional support for faculty development are discussed. Implications are developed for how faculty development could proceed based on this analysis. (JD)
