Philippines Univ., Quezon City. Asian Inst. for Teacher Educators.
This final report describes the activities and conclusions of the Second Sub-Regional Workshop on Teacher Education held in November 1971. The program was organized by the Asian Institute for Teacher Educators, Quezon City, Philippines, with the cooperation of UNESCO. The government of Thailand helped organize the program for the following group of member states: Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, and Thailand. The program centered around seminars on the progress of teacher education in the participating Asian member states, seminars on integration and modernization, and workshops on integration and modernization (applying a systems approach to integration and modernization of teacher education). Three general conclusions found a) lack of relevance to existing social needs and aspirations, b) divergence between theory and practices, and c) divergence between training institutions and school systems. Further conclusions dealt with integrated curriculum, research, teaching procedures, methods and techniques, social relevance of teacher education and status of teachers. Appendixes include lists of officeholders, participants, and observers; agenda and work schedules; and lists of participants in the working groups. Speeches, figures, diagrams, and tables are included. (MJM)
