The Image of the Teaching Profession. Queensland Teachers Discuss Ways To Enhance the Image of Their Profession.
This document reports on a project to identify and analyze the desire for professional collegiality and concerns about increasing alienation among members of the Queensland Institute for Educational Administration (QIEA). From a 3-phase workshop involving over 500 participants, 7 major issues were identified: (1) complexity of teaching and learning; (2) selection of candidates; (3) preservice teacher education; (4) decision-making power of teachers; (5) public presentation and representation; (6) the teaching workplace; and (7) professional development and inservice education. Each issue is discussed, and specific proposals for action are recommended. The 25 proposals for action are presented to provide a framework for the revitalization and maturation of teaching as a profession, and enhancement of the image of the profession. Appendices include a list of participants, an outline of the process of the three phases, schedules for the three workshops, and outlines of the outcomes of phases one and two.
