United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and Oceania.
Problems involved in implementing curriculum changes in Asian countries is the subject of this report, presented in the form of a symposium. The Technical Working Group of the Asian Centre of Educational Innovation for Development (ACEID) met in September, 1976, to study the experiences of the following countries: India, Indonesia, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. The symposium includes summaries of case studies of curriculum development in each of the countries concerned. While many countries share the same process of implementing change, they are conscious of the need to improve their implementation strategies. One method that is discussed is the formation of networks of innovative projects within and between countries. (Author/LD)
