Teacher Education in the Republic of Ireland: Retrospect and Prospect

Teacher Education in the Republic of Ireland: Retrospect and Prospect

Papers from a conference on the initial education, induction and continuing professional development of teachers in the Republic of Ireland. An earlier conference in November 2000 had considered the initial education, induction and continuing professional development of teachers in Northern Ireland.

The papers presented at the Dublin conference provide a valuable overview of teacher education (initial, induction and inservice) in the Republic of Ireland, its current status and future prospects. The presenters were among the most experienced and respected educationalists in the country and had been at the heart of developments within the system for many years. In view of this, SCoTENS decided that the papers should be made available in printed form to a wider public.
