United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand).
This document describes the objectives and focus of a workshop convened by UNESCO in 1982 to design and develop frameworks for training national curriculum specialists, and presents three "workshop products," i.e., reports on policy resulting from the workshop. Part one outlines purpose of the workshop and lists the participants from eight countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, China, India, Pakistan, the Philippines, Viet Nam, and Thailand. The major objective addressed by participants was to enhance curriculum developers' ability to support improved learning by children from disadvantaged environments. A UNESCO official's welcoming address, which focused on education for the disadvantaged in developing countries, is also included in this section. Part two contains the three policy papers. These are entitled (1) "Identification of Problems Hindering Achievement by Disadvantaged Learners and Actions to Improve Learning"; (2) "Exemplar Training Framework in Respect of Intervention in the Specification of Intended Learning Outcomes"; and (3) "Exemplar Training Framework in Respect of Intervention in the Specification for the International System and Guidelines for Teacher Education."
