Teacher education at a distance (Inglês)

The teaching force has experienced a dramatic growth, and teacher education has been criticized on grounds of quantity and quality. This paper looks at the problems facing teacher education and a new model for its development, the experience of distance education, the role of technology, and the evidence on costs and effectiveness. The paper suggests that an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of current teacher education makes it possible to sketch out a new model that will strengthen it. That model will seek to achieve appropriate balances between its various components. It is likely to give greater emphasis to inservice education. Distance learning techniques, that allow teachers to increase their competence without leaving their schools, and new technologies that support interaction between students and tutors, have a major role to play. It concludes by suggesting measures the World Bank and other agencies can take to strengthen teacher education in developing countries.
