Training for Adult Education in Africa: Papers from the Fourth Conference of the African Adult Education Association (Khartoum, Sudan, 28 December 1968 - 4 January 1969).
African Adult Education Association, Lusaka (Zambia).
A collection of documents from the Fourth Conference of the African Adult Education Association includes minutes of the general meeting and discussion groups, the secretary's annual report, and some of the papers presented at the conference. The primary emphasis was on personnel training, and most of the papers dealt with training techniques and the programs of particular countries or institutions. Illiteracy, night schools, part-time teachers, community development, inservice training, and the folk school approach were among topics receiving particular emphasis. Diploma programs in adult education were described. Some comparisons between European and African personnel training and adult education were made.
