image of Caribbean Issues and Developments

The output of a regional teacher education seminar in Trinidad and Tobago in 1995. The objective was to examine developments locally and in other parts of the world, and determine priorities and projects for developing and strengthening teacher education in the Caribbean.




The Commonwealth Caribbean Seminar on Teacher Education was not only timely for the region, it also happened when many key facets of teacher education and training were being debated and challenged worldwide. The seminar was held with the intention of making the education and training of teachers more innovative and more challenging with the ultimate aim of improving the quality of teaching and learning. It is clear from the papers that were presented at the seminar and the subsequent discussion that emanated from them, that the Caribbean region provides those who study the field of international education with very clear insights into a number of contemporary issues concerned with achieving better teacher quality.
