PROCEEDINGS OF THE CONFERENCE ON PROGRAMMED LEARNING AND RESEARCH IN ADULT EDUCATION (NAIROBI, JUNE 12-19, 1966).
PROSSER, ROY C.; AND OTHERS
DISCUSSIONS AT THE SECOND CONFERENCE OF THE ADULT EDUCATION ASSOCIATION OF EAST AND CENTRAL AFRICA CONCENTRATED ON PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION AND RESEARCH. THE BASIC TECHNIQUES OF PROGRAMING WERE OUTLINED AND CURRENT TRENDS OF THOUGHT IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION WERE DISCUSSED. THE CONFEREES EXAMINED THE FIELDS WHERE RESEARCH WOULD BE APPROPRIATE, THE MOST VALUABLE METHODS TO BE USED, AND THE WAYS IN WHICH MORE RESEARCH AND EVALUATION COULD BE ACHIEVED IN DEVELOPING NATIONS. IT WAS RESOLVED THAT--(1) PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION HAD GREAT POTENTIAL VALUE IN ADULT EDUCATION IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, WHERE THERE IS A CHRONIC TEACHER SHORTAGE AND MANY ADULTS HAVE TO LEARN ON THEIR OWN AND THAT (2) IMMEDIATE STEPS SHOULD BE TAKEN TO START RESEARCH PROJECTS, USING EXISTING RESEARCH INSTITUTES AND SOLICITING EXTERNAL ASSISTANCE. (THIS CONFERENCE WAS HELD AT NAIROBI, JUNE 12-19, 1966) (RT)
