|Title:||Giving Continuing Professional Education More Impact: Adding Bhutan-Related Classroom Practices in Australia and Action Research in Bhutan to the Bhutanese Multigrade Attachment Program (BMAP) - Participants' Perspectives||Contributor(s):||Halloway, Warren (author); Maxwell, Thomas W (author)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5410||Abstract:||Multigrade teaching was introduced to Bhutan to address the Education for All (EFA) goals. Multigrade schools are those rural schools in which a teacher must teach more than one grade in a class and sometimes all grades from K to 6. The Bhutanese Multigrade Attachment Project (BMAP), involving a phase in Australia and another in Bhutan, was commenced in 1993. Two major changes occurred during the 16 years of implementation following an essentially "one shot" model of continuing professional development (CPD) of the early years. A range of data from these two changes were analysed indicating that the BMAP had had an impact upon the majority of participants. The features of BMAP are identified.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||ISFIRE 2009: International Symposium for Innovation in Rural Education Improving Equity in Rural Education, University of New England, Armidale, Australia, 11th - 14th February, 2009||Conference Details:||ISFIRE 2009: International Symposium for Innovation in Rural Education Improving Equity in Rural Education, University of New England, Armidale, Australia, 11th - 14th February, 2009||Source of Publication:||Innovation for Equity in Rural Education: Proceedings of the International Symposium For Innovation in Rural Education (ISFIRE), p. 127-136||Publisher:||University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, NSW, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130105 Primary Education (excl Maori)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.une.edu.au/simerr/ISFIRE/pages/conferencedetails_conferenceproceedings.php||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 138
