This seminar report contains summaries of presentations as well as entire reports and addresses made at the Regional Seminar on Technical and Vocational Education in Asia and Oceania held in Singapore in November 1979. Chapter 1 summarizes the trends, problems, and innovations in technical and vocational education which were identified in presentations of country reports made by participants. Chapter 2 combines in one report the reports of the two working groups formed to discuss (1) planning, organization, and administration and (2) technical and substantive aspects of curriculum development and teacher education. Specific topics addressed include problems of implementation, teacher selection and development, and rural development. Chapter 3 sets forth the recommendations for consideration by government or educational agencies on issues at the national level (productive work--a learning experience involving actual work situations--and technical and vocational education in rural areas) and at the regional level (development of a technical and vocational education system suited to needs and conditions). Annexes include the seminar agenda and three inaugural addresses. (YLB)
