Teacher Education Planning Handbook
The Teacher Education Planning Handbook draws on our experience of designing and implementing large-scale in-service teacher education programmes along with our partners in India, South Asia and around the world. It provides practical advice, strategies, and contains examples of tools and processes to support the delivery of teacher education interventions in a similar context. The handbook has been edited by Dr Martin Wedell – Senior Lecturer and Head of International Education at the University of Leeds. This new resource is aimed at those responsible for
· designing and planning effective large-scaleteacher education models that are based on sound principles of educationalchange management and reflect the goals of national policy documents
· mitigating risks associated with managingteacher education programmes
· designing and implementing participatorymonitoring and evaluation systems.
