The Role of Initial Teacher Training in the Promotion of a Lifelong Learning Culture: A Conflict of Ideals?
Irving, Barrie A.
Education + Training, v41 n9 p416-24 1999
Initial teacher training emphasizes skills, competencies, and subject knowledge at the expense of theory and intellectual debate. This approach is incompatible with a lifelong learning culture. Beginning teachers must understand their own role as lifelong learners so that the concept can permeate teaching practice. (SK)
