Government-Based Training Agencies and the Professional Development of Indonesian Teachers of English for Young Learners: Perspectives from Complexity Theory
Zein, Mochamad Subhan
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v42 n2 p205-223 2016
This study was conducted to identify suggestions to improve PD programmes held by government-based training agencies to help enhance Indonesian EYL teachers' instructional practice. For the purpose of the study, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 51 participants. The findings suggest the theorisation of a PD model that involves complex and dynamic interactions between actors including teacher educators, school principals, educational administrators and teachers' groups. This paper argues for the need to separate the expertise and facilitative roles between PD actors as it relates to PD accountability in terms of design, development and implementation. The implications drawn from the study may inform teacher educators and policy-makers in countries facing a shortage of properly trained EYL teachers.
