The Implications of Implementing the Target Oriented Curriculum (TOC) for Teacher Education
In spite of widespread discussion and criticisms, the Target Oriented Curriculum (TOC) is destined to be implemented in many Hong Kong primary schools. This paper aims to make an attempt in exploring the multifaceted roles of teachers under this curriculum change. A review into the related papers and documents, the principles of learning under TOC and the ways how this initiative is to work in actual practice will be made. By looking critically into the above aspects, some objective criteria concerning the professional qualities and expertise required of TOC teachers are deduced. Some implications of TOC for teacher education are also addressed.
