Moral Education in Asia: Promotional Strategies and Evaluation Techniques. Reports of a High-Level Seminar and a Regional Workshop (Tokyo, Japan, 1978).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and Oceania.
This publication reports on a seminar and a workshop held in Tokyo, Japan, 1978 dealing with moral education in Asia. The seminar and workshop participants exchanged information and experiences, examined problems, and suggested guidelines for the implementation of regional programs in moral education. Participating countries include Afghanistan, Burma, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. Chapter I of the report presents problems and issues discussed. In many of the participating countries, moral instruction is provided as a part of other courses; in others it is offered as a separate course. In all of the countries, the main focus of moral instruction is on the development of character traits that reflect the moral values of each individual country. Only a few countries have provided textbooks for teaching the subject. Countries have, however, provided the teachers with guidelines and sample materials to implement the programs on moral education. Chapter II contains recommended strategies for advancing moral education. Countries are encouraged to include moral education in teacher education programs, to design a coordinated approach to moral education, and to establish national task forces. Chapter three deals with evaluative practices, problems, and remedial measures. Lists of seminar and workshop participants are included in the appendices. (Author/RM)
