Developing Instructional Materials for Productive Skills. Report of a Study Group Meeting (Jakarta, Indonesia, October 2-17, 1979).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and Oceania.
In October 1979, representatives of six of the twenty member nations of the Asia Programme of Educational Innovation for Development met in Indonesia to discuss formulation of guidelines for developing instructional materials for teaching productive skills. This report on that conference begins with comments on experiences in materials development in the participating countries: the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam, and Sri Lanka. A description follows of the five Indonesian vocational educational institutions visited by conference participants for observation of the implementation of skill education curricula. The third section of the report presents the results of group analyses of the materials development experiences common to several countries or unique to particular countries. These analyses concentrated on three areas: the concept and objectives of skill education, approaches to skill education, and instructional materials. As a result of these sessions, the conference developed guidelines for materials development, which are presented in the final section of the report. (PGD)
