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. Dale Coye The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching Princeton, NJ
