A study group of representatives from eight Asian nations met under the auspices of the Asian Programme of Educational Innovation for Development to share experiences related to inservice education and the development of materials used in inservice training. The participants were specialists in different disciplines, teacher educators, curriculum developers, and personnel connected with instructional design and materials development and evaluation. The aims of the meeting were: (1) to analyze strategies for inservice training of teachers and other education personnel; (2) to review and analyze the exemplary materials developed in the countries for inservice training; and (3) to develop guidelines for preparation of exemplary materials for inservice training. The first chapter highlights the status of inservice education programs and alternative approaches currently undertaken in each of the participating countries: Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, the Phillipines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. Chapters contain discussions on developing strategies, materials, guidelines, and the follow-up actions postulated by each country at the end of the meeting. Appendices include an agenda of the meeting, a list of the participants, and a list of the working documents. (FG)
