Abstract

SBCD activities are considered beneficial to the professional development of the teachers. It is particularly argued for quite some time that involvement of teachers in an enquiry based or action research mode of thinking processes is intrinsic to the needs of teacher development. This study has attempted to investigate first the impacts of involvement in the implementation of a curriculum project upon teachers and students, and second, with an analytical framework of SBCD from Marsh, it is argued that successful implementation of SBCD activities depends on the appropriate conception of the innovation in a number of contextual variables which exert influence on the achievement of the innovation objectives.
