Stanford to host international conference on teacher research

STANFORD -- Teacher research will be the focus of a working conference April 15-17 at Stanford University.

The Stanford/Schools Collaborative and the Committee for the 1994 National Society for the Study of Education Yearbook on Teacher Research will co-sponsor the conference. It is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 15, and end at 1:30 p.m. Friday, April 17, at the CERAS building. It is intended for anyone interested in teacher-initiated research.

The conference, limited to 180 participants, is in advance of the American Educational Research Association's annual meeting, which starts Monday, April 20, in San Francisco.

The Stanford gathering offers researchers the opportunity to discuss work in progress as well as examine key questions about the rapidly developing international interest in teacher research.

Some of those questions are:

  • What are the political and conceptual challenges facing teacher research? How might they be addressed?
  • How can teacher-initiated inquiry become more prominent on the educational research agenda?
  • What is the role of teacher research in teacher education?
  • What place can teacher research have in professional development centers?
  • How does teacher research become institutionalized?

The registration fee is $75, which includes three conference lunches and administrative expenses. For more information, contact Beverly Carter, director of the Stanford/Schools Collaborative, School of Education, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, 94305- 3096, telephone (415) 723-1483.
