Scanning the New Horizons: Essays on the Preparation of Educational Research Personnel in Asia and the Pacific.
Watson, John E., Ed.
Eighteen essays are presented by participants at a regional seminar on the training of educational research personnel. Following an introduction which discusses trends and problems in the educational leadership of Asian countries, material is divided into five sections. Section 1, advancing the professionalism of teachers, contains three articles covering educational research in Japan, alternative training methods, and new developments in university training for research. Section 2 examines the contributions of universities to educational research and includes case studies of the Philippines, Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, and Nepal. Section 3 focuses on the task of coordinating educational research efforts. Three articles discuss educational research in China, the training of researchers in behavioral sciences, and identifying national education infrastructures. The 5 articles in section 4 examine the relationship between administrative style and research training as seen in Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, the North Solomon Islands, and Indonesia. In the final section, two articles identify prospects for international collaboration. (LP)
