|Primary Teacher Education in Malawi: Insights into Practice and Policy (CIE, 2002, 144 p.)|
This report would not have been possible without the cooperation and assistance of many colleagues who gave freely of their time and insights during the conception of the MUSTER research, the collection of data, and the analysis and presentation of the material in synthesis of the many sub-studies conducted. Our thanks are due to them and to the MoEST for approving this programme of research.
The MUSTER team in Malawi consisted of:
The staff of the Centre for Educational Research and Training (CERT) provided the infrastructure which supported this work. Keith Lewin, Janet Stuart and Alison Croft worked in Malawi on various aspects of the research directly with CERT members and contributed insights to the drafting of this report. Keith Gristock (DFID) and Ken Longden (DFID formerly British Council) offered advice and support over the course of the research.
We hope this final report does justice to the work undertaken, often with considerable operational difficulties. This research stands as the first comprehensive, empirical study of teacher education in Malawi and is a credit to the persistence and insight of all those involved.
