Strengthening National Training Capacities in Educational Planning and Administration. Report of an International Institute for Educational Planning Seminar (Paris, France, December 10-14, 1990).
Hallak, Jacques; Martin, Michaela
Being the first seminar to bring together senior officials from Educational Planning and Administration (EPA) training institutes located in developing countries, this meeting was designed to help strengthen cooperation between the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) and training institutions. Participants were invited to share EPA training experiences, analyze their educational systems' training needs, examine ways to strengthen national capacities for training educational planners and administrators, and consider cooperative strategies. Two prior IIEP surveys addressed to 109 ministries of education in developing countries and to 318 training institutes throughout the world showed the considerable gap between training supply and demand, the weakness of the supply, the obstacles to improving training, the dearth of qualified national trainers, the shortage of teaching materials, and the insufficiency of financial resources. Participants raised issues concerning their nations' educational development, national EPA training structures, typology of training institutes and programs, and training strategies. Participants also analyzed their countries' training needs, focusing on methodologies and major environmental and education trends. They discussed ideas for strengthening national training capacities, pursuing interinstitutional cooperation. The group also defined areas needing IIEP assistance. Appendices contain a list of seminar participants; individual group reports; individual training needs analyses from Senegal, Mexico, and Ghana; and a list of seminar documents. (MLH)
