Insights into the Policy and Practice of Teacher Education in Low-Income Countries: The Multi-Site Teacher Education Research Project
Lewin, Keith M.; Stuart, Janet M.
British Educational Research Journal, v29 n5 p691-707 Oct 2003
The Multi-Site Teacher Education Research project (MUSTER) explores initial teacher education in five countries--Ghana, Lesotho, Malawi, South Africa, and Trinidad and Tobago. National research teams collected and analysed data on key dimensions of the training process, which included the characteristics of those selected for training, the curriculum processes they experience, the outcomes of training, the reflections of newly trained teachers in schools, analysis of supply and demand for new teachers, and projections of the resource and cost implications of meeting national targets to universalise primary schooling. Many insights are contained in the extensive publications associated with the project, and these lead to a variety of evidenced-based conclusions that will inform future policy. (Contains 1 table.)
