Innovation in Teacher Education

Innovation in Teacher Education, from the Nuffield Foundation, describes how tutors involved in the Science Teacher Education Project (STEP) cooperated to devise and try out a variety of exercises and activities as alternatives or additions to established tutorial procedures as practiced in the early 1970s. Thus the book provides a case-study in innovation.

The book includes a chapter covering the content of professional courses which discusses how the resources devised by STEP might help to bring about a closer integration of theory and practice in science teaching.
