Storrs Campus
Gentry Building, Room 142/144

Experimental studies, particularly randomized control trials, are often considered the “gold standard” in educational research. In research on teacher development, though, some RCTs that explored promising induction or professional development approaches have produced negligible results. And in the area of pre-service teacher preparation, there are many challenges to even conducting experimental studies at all. In this presentation, Peter Youngs will describe a set of his own completed and ongoing studies of beginning teachers’ commitment, retention, and instructional practices that a) focus on social context and b) represent alternative ways of designing research on novice teachers.
