Teachers Today Must Wear Many Hats!
Professional and subject knowledge has long been part of the teacher education curriculum. However, skill training in the areas of developing, acting, managing and selling appears to have been overlooked in most programs.
Research has shown that some of our best teachers are also accomplished DEVELOPERS! They create and adapt a wide variety of multimedia teaching materials for instructional use. They are able to use both traditional tools and the computer to enhance their professional productivity. Developing skills, then, also need to be honed.
Developing for Teachers will contribute to the professional development of both new and experienced teachers by providing training in the developing skills that are desired.
