National Strategies for Curriculum Development.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and Oceania.
Officials responsible for designing and introducing curriculum innovation in countries participating in the Asian Programme of Education Innovation for Development (APEID) met in Australia in September 1979 to exchange experiences and explore problems and issues of common interest. Conference participants, representing educational ministries or departments in Afghanistan, Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, presented two papers apiece to the meeting. The first of these papers was an institutional profile outlining the structure and working methods of the national agencies responsible for curriculum development, and the second was a position paper describing the national position on issues being addressed by these agencies. These papers are presented in edited, condensed versions in this document. A profile of APEID is also included. (PGD)
