Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0871201674, Paperback)According to author Bruce Joyce, schools would be well served if staff development programs more often employed research- and clinical-based psychology to train educators. In Changing School Culture Through Staff Development, Joyce uses examples from the field as well as psychological and neurological research to suggest progressive staff development methods. He also outlines and discusses five main wishes for the advancement of staff development:
The establishment of a partnership between research and clinical practice;
A critical core of knowledge as a prerequisite for the certification of educators;
Acceptance by the educational establishment of the complexity of neurological functions;
Pre-certification instruction of educators that teaches the skill of teacher performance
A general endorsement of staff development, and the funding thereof, as routine
procedure for all educators, regardless of status. Throughout this book, Joyce keeps his five main wishes in mind as ultimate staff development goals, and interprets empirical data on the subject accordingly.
