The article presents a reprint of the article "Techniques of Inservice Education," by C.A. Weber which appeared in the October 1942 issue of the "North Central Association Quarterly." It focuses on the techniques employed in secondary schools for educating teachers in service. These include the most promising techniques for improving instruction, improving staff relations and improving community relations. Techniques considered least valuable are given which include holding staff meetings without adequate planning. Cooperative techniques are those that involve active teacher participation in planning and policy making.
