National Workshop on Community Development Teaching and Research (April 1968).
Ontario Inst. for Studies in Education, Toronto.
The workshop reports on tasks, recommendations, and general implications for the study and practice of community development in Canada. Part one deals with recommendations and tasks arising in the areas of conferences and communication, community development as a field of study, training, field work, and survey and placement of workers. Recommendations include; provisions for an annual conference; definitions of the government role in community development; training programs emphasizing the human aspect; a greater sharing of resources between government and nongovernment agencies; establishment of regional training centers, pilot training programs, residential training centers, financial aid to students, systematic evaluation and research; and formation of a National Committee for Community Development, a national information center, and a directory of human resources in Canada in community development. Part two reports on discussion group results: on government intervention, urban development, subprofessionals, apathy of the population, hostility of community vested interests, loyalty problems, and a definition of the community development process. The appendixes include participant profiles, meeting agenda, proposal for a Canadian education research information system, and an experiment in developing teaching material. (pt)
