International Council on Education for Teaching, Arlington, VA.
This proceedings provides teachers with a review of current research and innovative programs and practices viewed from an international perspective and offers to improve the quality of teacher education worldwide. The World Assembly theme was supported by plenary sessions and research-based paper presentations focusing on four topics: (1) redefining inservice and preservice teacher education for a technologically-linked interdependent world; (2) promoting professional qualities of teachers and teacher educators to improve existing knowledge of the personal, organizational, and social factors which influence the career-long learning and development of teachers and teacher educators; (3) improving the quality of teacher education through curriculum development to remodel curricula and prepare teachers and teacher educators for the 21st century with an openness to diversity and the multimedia superhighway; and (4) redefining excellence in education by fostering partnerships between teachers/higher education and business/industry in a global marketplace and involving business/industry and teacher/higher education in collaborative activities for mutual benefit. The report's seven sections include research and analysis by education leaders worldwide; a compilation of keynote and concurrent session papers delivered by Omani education leaders and scholars; academic papers presented during concurrent sessions by international educators; and the World Assembly communique and recommendations.
