Evaluating Change with MA TEFL/TESL Students
Chapter 5 is the first of three chapters devoted to the evaluation of change in a specific context. All three chapters involve participants on in-service education and training (INSET) programmes. The chapter begins by giving an overview of the development of INSET from the 1970s, when INSET became a key feature on the education agenda, through to its rebirth in subsequent decades as continuing professional development, with the focus on the personal as well as professional needs of the teachers. It gives a summary of recent developments in language teacher education and offers a tentative set of criteria for successful professional development. The following section looks at a particular example of language teacher education, a master’s programme in the teaching of English as a foreign or second language (MA TEFL/TESL).
