Philippines Univ., Quezon City. Asian Inst. for Teacher Educators.
This UNESCO-sponsored report contains innovations and program recommendations for a research-development approach to teacher education in Asia. The first section of the report deals with the problems of an educational lag in Asia, with emphasis on educational research and development in teacher education as a solution to these problems. The second section presents specific examples of research and development programs for teacher education. These examples include both long- and short-range programs with objectives, expected outcomes, and methodologies for each program. An annotated list of 10 other proposed projects are also given. The third section explains the implementation of research and development programs in teacher education. The criteria for selection of the programs are explained, and the organizational aspects are investigated. The functions of the programs are presented, and questions arising from these functions are proposed. The actual establishment of these research and development programs hinged on the consideration of these questions and the national acceptance of the answers. The necessity of international cooperation is stressed, and the aspects of funding and quality control are included. The annexes present the agenda and work schedule of the program, along with opening statements. Lists of participants, working committees, and office bearers are also included. (BRB)
