School Based In-Service Teaching: A Handbook.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and the Pacific.
This monograph presents the results of an exploration of the effectiveness of the School Based In-Service Training (SBIT) program for primary teachers. The program operates on the premise that the school is the largest and most appropriate unit for educational change, and that teachers not only have the capability to develop their personal and professional abilities in the school and community, but also need to be involved in the identification and articulation of their own training needs. Chapter I describes the experience and practices of countries participating in SBIT. Chapter II offers guidelines for the development of SBIT programs. In Chapter III, summaries of case reports are presented from five countries that conducted pilot/experimental studies on the use of SBIT programs as a response to the growing needs and demands of social and technological changes in the society in which the schools operate. These reports are from: (1) Napal; (2) Pakistan; (3) Papua New Guinea; (4) Republic of Korea; and (5) Thailand. The final chapter discusses the future potential of SBIT. (JD)
