National Inst. for Educational Research, Tokyo (Japan).
Two workshops on the preparation of teachers for vocational and technical education in Asia and the Pacific were held in 1981 and 1982 in Bangkok, Thailand. During the two meetings, the following activities were carried out: (1) problems faced by the developing countries in preparing teachers, instructors, and teacher educators for vocational and technical education were identified; (2) feasible solutions to these problems, taking into account the growth points and gaps in respect of structures, strategies and methodologies adapted for training, retraining, and upgrading of vocational and technical teachers were explored; (3) the existing curriculum/course content for preservice and inservice/continuing programs for vocational and technical education in secondary and postsecondary schools in Asia and the Pacific was reviewed; (4) guidelines for preservice and inservice/continuing programs in preparing and upgrading vocational and technical teachers, for use in training institutions and workshops and as guides for supervisors or teacher trainers were developed; and (5) recommendations for regional cooperation in vocational education and in teacher preparation programs were made. (Summaries of reports given by delegates from 16 Asian and Pacific countries are included in the conference proceedings.) (KC)
