Effectiveness of teacher advisory centres (TACs) in teacher professional development in Nairobi County, Kenya
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2011 Conference, in August 2011, Mozambique. Teacher Advisory Centres (TACs) were established in the 1970s for Kenya primary school teachers’ professional development. However teachers in primary schools face challenges in curriculum implementation. There are reports on poor pupil learning outcomes. Research has found that teachers who participate in sustained curriculum based teacher professional development activities reported changes in practice resulting in turn to high student learning achievement. The problem of this study was that TACs tended to be ineffective in teacher professional development.
