Teacher Change in an Informal Professional Development Programme: The 4-I Model.

Yeap Ban Har, Ho Siew Yin

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


    This chapter describes a study on teacher change within a large research project which investigated the effects of using word problems that require students to engage in sense-making. Case studies of several teachers who participated in the study were used to develop a model of teacher change. This model, referred to as the 4-I Model, describes teacher change when a new initiative is introduced and is exemplified by four types of teachers who: ignore the initiative; imitate practices recommended for the implementation of the initiative; integrate the principles of the new initiative into their instructional practice; internalise the principles of the initiative.
