The third in a series on distance learning, this volume presents 11 exemplar instructional packages which are the output of a process of evaluation and selection in accordance with guidelines developed by the Technical Working Group at the Pakistan Meeting.

Topics addressed are human development, education for disadvantaged groups--education for girls in India, teaching child psychology, planning research, maternal training of preschoolers, how a teacher should ask questions, tutoring at a distance, systems orientation, nation building, how to teach meaning of incomplete sentences, and education management in Thai society (welfare education).
