Social Change and Training of Educational Personnel. Report of a Regional Design Meeting (Bangkok, Thailand, July 26-August 3, 1982).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and the Pacific.
An overview of 19 papers presented at the meeting indicates that countries in the Asia and Pacific region are aware of socioeconomic changes and the need for national educational systems to provide adequate responses to these changes. New personnel profiles and educational training programs are needed. Factors which will affect the development of educational personnel include: technological advancements; social trends; changes in social requirements and in educational science; the information revolution; and management issues, e.g., public participation in system development. Guidelines are suggested to help educators develop and evaluate training programs. Specific suggestions are provided for preparing personnel profiles and training program strategies, content, materials, and evaluation. Planning for future activities is also discussed. Specific research projects for national initiatives are outlined and described. For example, one study will examine the role of community leadership in the management of education. (RM)
