General Poster Session
The poster indicates the initial situation of a research projects and gives an overview of the research questions, the research goals and methodological approach to this project which focuses on the current state of Personnel Development in schools in Canton Zurich, Switzerland. The main questions of the research are: What are school leaders doing exactly to support the development of the teachers? What kind of tasks do they perform? Do they work on the basis of a systematical approach e. g., a concept for Personnel Development?
The theoretical and practical approaches to Personnel Development varies. Depending on the scientific perspective (such as the economical, the pedagogical, the sociological, the psychological) different aspects of this subject are highlighted. Authors like Becker (see Becker, 2009) recommend for this reason an interdisciplinary approach on the basis of the social sciences. This gives a broad understanding of Personnel Development and offers a wide horizon for the practice and more opportunities for implementation. Besides a common “tenor” can be seen in most of the scientific literature about this issue (see Mentzel, 2001; Mudra, 2004): Personnel development in an organization should be based on a concept or at least on a systematic approach, so that it can “unfold” real effects and impacts on the whole organization and not “only” on a singular person or individual.
Looking inside the practice in an organization's personal, professional, political, financial factors and other internal and external impacts lead to different “designs” of Personnel Development. The determining factors are the responsible “actors” of Personnel Development in and outside an organization. They finally decide about the specific aspects which will be put into practice. This results in a range of implementations of this subject in the practice based on understandings from narrow to wide. Becker clusters this range in three kinds of “maturity grades”: 1) narrow e. g., including apprenticeship, further education, 2) enhanced e. g., starting with recruitment and ending with leaving the organization, 3) broad e. g., including team development and working on projects (see Becker, 2006).The same “phenomenon” of ranges can be seen in schools. Steger Vogt and Appius have come to the conclusion that “till now there isn’t any common understanding of Personnel Development” in schools (see the results of the data collection in the Canton St. Gallen in Steger Vogt, Appius, 2011).
Against this background the research wants to gather information about the current state of Personnel Development in selected schools: For this the project addresses school leaders as responsible “actors” for enabling development of the teaching staff and the school in general (see § 44, Volksschulgesetz, 2005). The information which will be gained is the basis for hypotheses about the state of Personnel Development in schools. These hypotheses shall help to generate further research questions for the understanding and implementation of Personnel Development in schools in the Canton Zurich and shall be used for the further development of the content and the design of a program for Personnel Development at the University of Teacher Education Zurich.
