National Inst. for Educational Research, Tokyo (Japan).
The purpose of the "Learning for a Sustainable Environment: Innovations in Teacher Education" project is to expand the range of innovative practices used in teacher education programs in the Asia-Pacific region. The project helps teacher educators develop the skills for introducing teachers and teachers-in-training to the concepts, curriculum planning skills, and teaching methodologies of environmental education. Designed to be conducted in three stages, the project was nearing the end of Stage 2 when the regional seminar was held in 1996. This document reports on that seminar, the broad goals of which were to evaluate the professional development process and modules from Stages 1 and 2 and develop collaborative plans for Stage 3. Contents are as follows: Executive Summary; Chapter 1--"Introduction"; Chapter 2--"Synthesis of Country Reports"; Chapter 3--"Learning for a Sustainable Environment"; Chapter 4--"Evaluation of the Action Research Network Process for Professional Development"; Chapter 5--"Evaluation and Revision of the Project Modules"; Chapter 6--"Proposals for Stage 3"; Chapter 7--"Recommendations"; and an 11-item reference list. Appendices contain a list of participants, country reports, and sample completed project review guides from the Philippines and Fiji. (PVD)
