Insight from a Danish Research Project in Progress
This paper tries to shed light over two questions raised in the workshop: ‘Effects of Teacher Training' at the ASEM conference June 2009 on Teachers and Trainers in Adult Education and Lifelong Learning Professional Development in Asia and Europe. At first it is asked what do we already know about teacher training effects in relation to adult learners? This will be identified by a search for systematic reviews in the international clearinghouses and afterwards by a small scale mapping done in the pedagogic database ERIC. And second: which methods can be used to measure the effects of teacher training? This will be illustrated by describing a research design in progress at the National Centre of Competence Development, Denmark, regarding a program where teachers are taught teaching Cooperative Learning as a pedagogical and didactical method.
