Population education is at different stages of development in the Asian countries, but almost all of the countries show an interest in developing population education programs. This manual for designing and implementing population education programs consists of six chapters. Chapter one highlights issues and problems arising in connection with curriculum development in population education and with teacher education programs for elementary and secondary school teachers. The objectives, selection of curriculum content, and mode of inclusion are discussed. Chapter two provides the general pedagogical background for organizing and managing training programs. In chapter three a general procedure for developing a training program is discussed, and case studies are offered of inservice teacher training programs in Asia. Chapter four describes different strategies for introducing population education in preservice teacher education programs. Variations in target groups, institutions, duration, objectives, and content are taken into consideration. In chapter five, the various target groups needing orientation or training through inservice programs are identified and their training needs outlined. The final chapter discusses training methods before, during, and after training, and suggests follow-up activities. (JD)
