How to make the professional development system efficient?

2005. No. 4. P. 49–55 [issue contents]
The mass system of further training of teachers in the spheres of education policy, economics of education, education law, and curriculum development should lead the reform process and become the main experimental grounds, a pilot project structure for the education reform. In the Eureka school network, a complex of innovative programs has been developed. These programs offer an alternative to the traditional methods of professional development. The complex is targeted first and foremost at the self-realization of the child. It enables teachers engaged in joint projects with students to find new approaches and to acquire new skills. However, obstacles created by the Education Academy and the lack of a market considerably diminish the motivation to study new kinds of educational activity. This further marginalizes teachers.
