Abstract

THE PURPOSE OF THE DISSERTATION
The dissertation's purpose is to describe and judge the
development, implementation and outcomes of a particular
in-service training program for teachers. The program was
conducted during 1984 in the Burnie area of the North-West
Coast of Tasmania, and was entitled "Managing the Classroom
Environment".
AN OVERVIEW OF THE PROGRAM
"Managing the Classroom Environment" itself, and its
development, implementation and evaluation, were quite complex
in a number of ways, and these complexities unfold in
succeeding chapters. However, the reader will be assisted
by the provision of a brief overview at this early stage.
The program was developed, implemented and evaluated by
the writer and a colleague, who are both members of the staff
of the School of Teacher Education within the Tasmanian
College of Advanced Education. These two, together with a
Primary Schools liaison officer, a regional staff development
cfficer, a teachers' centre co-ordinator, and a senior
teacher from one of the Burnie High Schools, formed a small
management group to facilitate the program's implementation.
This group met on several occasions during the latter part
of 1983 and early 1984. Funding was sought through the
Federal Government's Participation and Equity Program and
other sources, and a teachers' centre offered the use of
its facilities.
It was intended that participating teachers would come
from both Primary and High Schools; that they would be
released from their schools for ten days of workshopping
throughout the year; that they would enter the program in
pairs and strengthen their collegial relationship during
the year; and that they would return to their schools
between workshops to apply their newly acquired or refined
knowledge, skills and attitudes. The two program leaders
(those from the TCAE) were both involved in all the
workshop sessions.
