United States-Japan Seminar on Science Education. Seminar Summary, Conclusions, and Recommendations (Honolulu, Hawaii, September 14-20, 1986).
The United States-Japan Cooperative Science Program was initiated for the purpose of conducting research and exchanging ideas for the improvement of science education. A seminar was held in Honolulu in 1986 to discuss efforts and future directions of this cooperative program. This paper reviews the outcomes of the seminar in three areas. These include: (1) research (stating research questions as well as listing potential hypotheses); (2) teacher education (identifying the strengths, problems, and issues in pre-service and in-service training and possible future plans for collaboration); and (3) curriculum (outlining specific plans for a U.S. team and a Japanese and Korean team, with a projected timeline extending through 1990).
