Practical Guide to In-Service Teacher Training in Africa. Establishment, Execution, and Control of Training Programmes.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This guide to inservice teacher education in developing countries is the product of a 1-week, 1968 workshop in Nairobi (Kenya) which focused on the problem of African Member States regarding inservice training programs. The introduction provides information on those problems: difficulties pertaining to the general culture and those related to training enough personnel with sufficient qualifications to meet the growing demand for education. Part 1 on general and specific aims includes discussion of the level of primary training, governing principles for inservice training, and the need. Part 2, "Preparation of the Plan of Operation: Content and Methods," covers preliminary survey and establishment of the training program at different levels (concept and direction of departments, briefing and retaining of supervisors and training staff, curriculum and teachers, and the diversity of inservice training programs). Part 3, "Execution of the Plan: Ways and Means," deals with administrative organization, calculation of costs and financing of the training program, organization of financing, and aids to decision making and phasing of inservice programs. Part 4 on "Control of the Plan of Operation: Methods of Evaluating Results" sketches a four-phase plan: description of the constituent parts of the project and its development, choice of data and methods to indicate results obtained as a function of objectives, collection of data, and analysis and interpretation of findings.
