In September 1978, the Asian Centre of Educational Innovation for Development convened a meeting to consider ways of promoting continuing education of teacher educators for innovative teacher education. This meeting prepared guidelines and country plans for the organization of National Advanced-Level Workshops involving member nations: Thailand, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Malaysia. The six directors of these workshops met again at another workshop to review experiences gained in the national workshops and to formulate suggestions for further actions. The review and suggestions for each country are presented in this report. All six of the nations have been contemplating or attempting further developments in their educational systems by changes to their structure, curricula, and methodologies in teacher education. The objectives of the workshops had many features in common, the ultimate aim being to improve general education through the further education of teachers. (CJ)
