This is the report of a workshop organised by the Commonwealth Secretariat on the theme of “Implementing programmes of in-service teacher education.” The main objective was to help those involved in the provision of in-service training to consider alternative modes of training which would enable more teachers to be given in-service training at less cost than through conventional methods and to establish an effective infrastructure of support and supervision for this training.



Summary of Discussions: Alternative Approaches to Teacher Education

Mr. A.L. Jones presented Mr. Stanley Vivian's paper. He drew attention to the seven main areas covered, and commented on them. He pointed out that the paper illustrated the very encouraging variety of devices which were being used to produce more and better teachers and noted that societies were not being de-schooled but schools were being changed by a process of re-schooling mainly by new thinking among teacher-educators.
