Marcia Pilgrim, Garry Hornby

Abstract


The focus of this article is to discuss the issue of teacher preparation for special and inclusive education in the English speaking Caribbean. The article suggests how teacher preparation for special and inclusive education in the Caribbean could be improved by the implementation of a competency-based, e-learning training program that was developed in New Zealand. The New Zealand training program is described and a brief summary of findings of a study evaluating the effectiveness of the program is presented. Finally, the article highlights how the New Zealand program can be translated into the Caribbean context.
