New Techniques for Preparing Educational Personnel. Universalizing Education: Selected Innovative Experiences.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and Oceania.
This publication is a compilation of twenty-four studies on Asian experiences with new educational techniques for preparing educational personnel in response to demands for the universalization of education. Ten of the studies were originally presented at a study group which met in Bangkok, Thailand, in the fall of 1978. These studies have been supplemented by case-study reports drawn from the national advanced-level workshops for teacher educators in member countries, inventories of educational innovations, and contributions by individual authors. These case-studies are grouped into three categories: (1) open learning and distance teaching; (2) programmed learning and microteaching; and (3) other new education techniques. The categories help to delineate some major trends as countries in the region explore ways and means to make their teacher education systems responsive to their particular ecology, socioeconomic status, and aspirations. This publication forms a part of a series by means of which the Asian Centre of Educational Innovation for Development is disseminating information about current educational innovations in countries in Asia and Oceania.
