United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and the Pacific.
This monograph addresses the fundamental planning question: When designing teacher training programs that have the specific objective of raising pupil performance, what operating procedures are necessary and what operational objectives should precede them? Part I of the monograph offers examples of the kind of pupil achievement problems confronting two countries (unnamed), followed by excerpts from works examining the process of identifying teachers' training needs and specifying the teacher competencies appropriate for the task of planning. The paper examines the whole process of planning teacher training programs and each excerpt is preceded by a brief introduction that sets the scene. In Part II, the concept of "operational teacher training objectives" is examined. The topic of planning a training process that has specified pupil outcomes is discussed, and the usefulness of the "operational objectives" concept is considered. A list of selected publications relating to training of educational personnel is included. (JD)
