Denise A. Soares, Ann Monroe, Susan S. McClelland
Creative Education (CE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2017.88094
The need for improved teacher training arises from the limitations of current teacher training programs. In many universities, general and special education programs continue to operate under separate models. Research shows teacher preparation programs failed to prepare general educators for the challenges of inclusion and collaborative teaching environments. The purpose of this report is to discuss the impetus for the program redesign by describing the outcomes of the joint venture between faculty in the Elementary, Secondary, and Special Education programs. A thorough description of the program (e.g. admissions, course sequence, action labs, and field experiences) as well as critical components will be discussed.

Among the main conclusions obtained, it was found that teachers need to identify the subject curriculum standards, they need to own an educational update in the creation of conducive learning environments for English language teaching, and also it was perceived with difficulties in students learning of English as a second language due to the lack of materials and infrastructure.

The creativity is expressed in all individuals, but it manifests itself in different proportions and it may be carried out at different levels. Development levels of this attribute depend on the teacher’s mediation in the process of learning. Creativity can be a challenge for most teachers, since they are unaware of its importance and unwittingly they inhibit by teaching methods that are not aimed at instigating the potential of students. Thus, this article aims to highlight the importance of teacher training for the development of gifted creativity. In conclusion, the mediation of teachers makes the difference in gifted education. As Vygotsky explains, it is precisely through the mediation that it is possible to develop the creative potential. In this sense, the training of the teaching staff reflects in how the mediation will take place during the process of teaching and learning. Therefore, it is essential that teachers are prepared to create a stimulating environment of potential and talents, as well as in performing a work with creativity of their students.

Notas para pensar una genealogía de la formación permanente del profesorado en la Argentina
Vezub, Lea Fernanda;
Revista mexicana de investigación educativa , 2009,
Abstract: teaching, teacher education, and lifelong learning have been the favored focus of intervention for educational policies and administrations, particularly during the most recent curriculum reforms in the region. these reforms positioned teacher professionalization and ongoing improvement at center stage. such a situation, along with the small number of specific research studies on the topic, produced an instrumental conception of training. since such a conception is generally rooted in policies and practices more than in theory, the possibilities for constructing an autonomous field of knowledge have been limited. this article proposes reviewing the historical background of professional teacher development and the obstacles for configuring the field. lastly, it looks at current problems and new tendencies that are debated in studies, policies, and teachers' experiences of development and lifelong learning.
