THE BENNETTSWOOD PROJECT: AN EVALUATION OF SCHOOL-BASED TEACHER EDUCATION

Year: 1990

Author: Maschette, Diane, Johnson, Richard

Type of paper: Abstract refereed

Abstract:
Drawing on a number of reports on teacher education produced in the 1980's (see Young, 1990 for a summary), a number of key objectives was formulated for the project. The objectives were conceptualised to redress the shortcomings of Australian preservice teacher education programs asserted in the reports and supported by the student evaluations referred to above. The objectives are to: link theory and practice; share responsibility for teacher education with the profession; utilise available resources, skill and knowledge of practising teachers; build reflection-on-practice into programs; provide effective classroom experiences for student teachers.
