The Teachers' Activity Centres of Malaysia.
Singh, Diljit
This paper describes the development of the Teachers' Activity Centers (TACs) in Malaysia. The TACs evolved from Local Resource Centers and District Resource Centers of the 1970s and 1980s. The 350 TACs in the country were initially supplied with basic tools for the production of teaching-learning resources. With administrative reorganization, the provision of a building to 200 TACs, the appointment of a full-time coordinator, and the provision of an annual budget, the role of the TACs has expanded to collaboratively meeting the challenges faced by teachers at the local level. The activities of the TACs include training and education, dissemination of information to teachers and administrators, production services, advisory services and technological leadership, all of which collectively contribute to the improvement of teaching-learning in the classroom. Among the challenges being faced are encouraging the use of the centers and improving their effectiveness. Future development of the centers is likely to focus on management, human resource development, physical facilities, and optimizing their utilization. (ND)
