Subject: Re: inservice v.t.
Before I got into the education racket (ten years ago) I had never heard
inservice in any form. The noun, as in "We're conducting an inservice on
whole language teaching," (meaning what used to be called a teachers'
workshop) has been around at least that long. I wonder how many people
outside of education know about it?
I've never heard this use as a verb, but am not surprised.
