Teaching the Teachers: What's Missing in LIS Doctoral Teacher Education?
Bradley J. Wiles
Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, v65 n1 p100-107 2024
This article offers a perspective on teacher education and training for doctoral students in LIS PhD programs. It discusses literature related to doctoral teacher education and training generally and in the LIS discipline in particular and provides an analysis of teacher education curricular offerings and requirements in doctoral programs based in the United States. The article suggests that this function of LIS doctoral studies is inconsistent across programs and potentially affects the quality of education in the LIS field. The article advocates for further discussion and research on the implications of effective doctoral teacher education and training for the profession.
