1.

Some possible criteria for distinguishing between training and education
strategies for development projects are listed below. Any particular strategy will be a complex
mix that which reflects all of the following criteria and possibly others. While some training
strategies have characteristics of 'either-or' (e.g., either the program is accredited or it is not),
others will have a more complex mix (e.g., some traditional components and some information
technology-based components). Whatever the choice of strategy, it should be based on a
careful training needs analysis that identifies requirements in terms of content, focus, learning
methods, etc., of the individual fellow.

Criterion

Item

Item

Accreditation

formally accredited (e.g., degree,
diploma, certificate)

Duration of Study

short courses,seminars, and
training workshops (e.g., lessthan
three months).

Focus

single focus (e.g., one day seminar
on time management)

Size of group

individual study (e.g., on-the-job
training, learning by distance
education)

Geographical Location In-country

Physical Location

at an institution

Media

traditional; mainly teacher centered
"chalk-and-talk"

Autonomy

curriculum determined by institution
(e.g., diploma course)

Continuity

continuous programs (e.g.,two-
weeks course on teaching skills)

Integration

integrated (e.g. trainee undertakes
needs analysis of work situation
prior to training and implements
agreed actions with support of
supeNisors on return)

not accredited

long courses (e.g. upto approx. six
yearsfor a medical degree)

multifocus (e.g. one year graduate
certificate on management)

group-based (e.q., training or
education delivered to groups of
students organized into classes)

overseas

elsewhere (home, fieldwork, on-the-
job)

non-traditional; mainly student
centered and materials or
information technology based

high degree of student autonomy
(e.g., PhD research student)

Discontinuous or sandwich
programs.

not integrated; training stands
alone; trainee is expected to apply
newskills to work situation
unaided.

One development in training strategies that cannot be ignored is the
globalization of education through the Internet. It is now possible for learners with access to
the Internet to enroll in programs of study with public and private institutions such as the Open
University (United Kingdom), Open Learning Australia, or Microsoft.

3.

The potential of this rapidly developing area for Indonesia is considerable and
can take advantage of a number of features of the present situation, including a remarkable
expansion of Internet services in the past three years across the nation; the recent installation
of modern telecommunications technologies in many provinces; a growing pool of expertise
both in-country (for example, in the curriculum materials projects at the Faculty of Computer
Science at Universitas Indonesia) and overseas among Indonesian higher degree students.

4.

At the present time, it would be necessary to integrate this development with
other strategies. For example, it is now understood that many Indonesians do not work well in
the isolated distance mode of educational delivery, so group~based activities that rely in part
on the provision of materials via the Internet may have to be devised to address this problem.
