|Abstract: ||To make the work of the Teacher Training Institute Programme more efficient and
effective, certain changes on the major activities of the pedagogical center of the teacher
training have taken place. Consequently, the Institute for Curriculum Development and
Research has prepared in 1996 a Guide material on how to organize and strengthening the
pedagogical centers of the teacher training institutes in line with the new directives indicated
in the Education and Training Policy of 1994. It was given the task of preparing
instructional materials, conducting action research, training and coordinating the instructional
staff and trainees in the Institute.
The purpose of the study is therefore, to investigate the factors affecting activities of
the pedagogical centers in the teacher training institutes. In accomplishing the task the
researcher used questionnaire, interview, document inspection and observation check list as
main instruments of collection.
The results of the study suggested that most of the instructors in the TTI's have
expressed their views in that the stated objectives and functions of the pedagogical center of
the TTI's were not easily attainable. The coordinators and directors of the three pedagogical
centers of the TTI's believed that the available facilities and resources do not allow
attainment of the stated functions in the respective TTI programmes.
It is, therefore, recommended that a guide material should be prepared in line with the
need of the training programme. Center coordinators and teaching staff should be trained.
The centers be provided with the necessary facilities and resources. Effective management
that understands the roles of PCs and that has commitment to its profession must be in place.|
