Klassen, Frank H., Ed.; Leavitt, Howard B., Ed.
This book reports on three International Council on Education for Teaching world assemblies held in Singapore, Berlin, and Washington, D.C. The report is divided into six major parts, each presenting papers pertinent to the central theme under discussion. Section one deals with policies for teacher education on the regional, national, and international scale. In section two, lifelong and nonformal education are the topics under discussion. Papers deal with broad concepts of the subject, educational demands in changing societies, and nonformal education in developing countries. Curriculum innovations are the topic of the third section. New curriculum content is described, education for peace and achievement motivation are discussed, and a program for the clinical preparation of teachers is examined. Educational technology is the subject in section four. Ways in which a more scientific approach to teacher education can be introduced and how they may be implemented are discussed in the papers presented in this section. Section five is devoted entirely to the subject of inservice education in Asia. Specific activities in eleven Asian countries are described. In the final section, current trends in teacher education are discussed in six geographical regions: India, Australia, Kenya, Canada, United States, and Southeast Asia. In conclusion a world-wide perspective on teacher education is presented. (JD)
