Teacher Education: Issues, Needs, and Plans for Action. [Report of a Unesco Regional Worshop on Teacher Education (Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, December 4-10, 1986).]
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and the Pacific.
During 1985-1986, 18 countries in the Asia and Pacific region undertook a survey of their teacher education programs. These survey studies provided statistical data and information, as well as details of trends and developments in teacher education, and were the subject of a workshop sponsored by Unesco's Asia and the Pacific Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (APEID). A review is presented of national studies reported by Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Maldives, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. This publication assesses the progress that has been made in these countries in widening and developing teacher education in the region. It also considers directions for the future that will ensure the development of new competencies, attitudes, and orientations required in education. A new regional plan of action is discussed and suggestions are made for future actions at national and intercountry levels. The survey questionnaire is appended. (JD)
