Macquarie Univ., North Ryde (Australia).
The Centre for Advancement of Teaching at Macquarie University in Australia serves as an agency through which the University makes a contribution to increasing the effectiveness of teaching and learning at all levels: primary, secondary, and tertiary. To this end the Centre seeks to develop cooperation with the academic staff of the University, with teachers in primary and secondary schools, and with appropriate officers of the State Departments of Education and of Technical Education and of other appropriate agencies. The activities of the Centre include: (1) research into curriculum construction and teaching procedures at all levels; (2) the preparation of teaching materials of high quality; (3) the provision for teachers of the opportunity to extend their knowledge of the content and methodology of the subjects they teach; (4) contributions to the pre-service training of teachers; and (5) the dissemination of information on these matters that is available from other agencies in Australia and overseas. This report summarizes some of the achievements and activities of the Centre from January 1967 to June 1969, including the establishment of the new audiovisual centre. (Author/PG)
