National Inst. for Educational Research, Tokyo (Japan).
This document is the result of two regional workshops (attended by representatives of 16 Asian countries) on the preparation of vocational and technical education teachers in Asia. Chapter 1 lists the objectives for the workshops, countries representated at each, and the officers for each. Chapter 2 gives an overall review of the present status of vocational education as well as the trends and issues in the participating countries. Chapter 3 contains a series of guidelines that the participants considered useful for curriculum construction. (Among the areas addressed are the levels of staff to be trained; the age, educational qualifications, and industrial experience of those entering training; the patterns of program delivery; who should develop curriculum; and the broad competencies to be developed.) Chapter 3 also contains a matrix that shows at what level various individuals (practical arts teachers, vocational teachers, technical teachers, training officers in industry, and educational administrators) should be trained in the following specific areas: pedagogical studies; industrial experience; subject specialization; general and liberal studies; and educational research and management. Also in chapter 3 are course objectives, course descriptions, and a design format for any program. Chapter 4 offers conclusions and recommendations. The appendices list workshop participants and summaries of reports on vocational education in the individual Asian countries participating. (CML)
