Teacher education through classroom evaluation The principles and practice of IT-INSET

    First Published in 1989 Teacher education through classroom evaluation is about the IT- INSET (Initial Training- In-Service Education and Training) approach to improving children’s learning. It argues that continuous improvement depends upon the quality of teachers’ theorising about learning and teaching. With help of case studies, it discusses important themes like evaluation strategy; IT- INSET in practice; the benefits of IT- INSET; influence of training institutions; helping and hindering factors and the present and future of IT- INSET, to showcase that IT-INSET represents both a philosophy of teacher education and a school-based programme of collaborative evaluation. This book is a must read for scholars and researchers of education.
