Systems Approach to Teacher Training and Curriculum Development: The Case of Developing Countries.
Razik, Taher A.
This publication describes a model for teacher training and curriculum development in developing nations that utilizes a systems approach. The model focuses on the development of a qualitative analysis concerned with the desired objectives of the educational activities. According to the author, the model (1) can be constantly adapted and corrected in the light of experience, (2) is designed to achieve a specified and measurable outcome, and (3) is designed to keep the end constantly in view. Although the model has been designed for developing countries in today's world, it has also been constructed with an eye to the future. With certain modifications, the model could be applied to any contemporary educational program. The three developing countries of Sudan, Kuwait, and Ceylon were selected for case studies and as examples of the model's contemporary application possibilities. A specific case study for Sudan is reproduced in the second part of the book. (Author/DN)
