World Education, Inc., New York, NY.
Efforts to design and plan demonstration and/or experimental projects were stressed at this Asian adult educator workshop on literacy and family planning education. Other objectives were to share experiences in preparing, producing, and using instructional and reading materials; to work out a basis for joint planning and pooling of resources; and to look into the kinds of technical assistance and supporting services which might help achieve the objectives set down by each country. Numerous issues and questions were explored on planning and organization, personnel needs, necessary medical information, instructional materials, involvement of governmental and other agencies, the special role of colleges and universities, and the relationship of literacy and family planning programs to the overall improvement of social conditions. Five functional work groups (including one on communication, audiovisual aids, mass media, and puppetry) prepared reports on specific subject matter areas. Each of the six country teams (Afghanistan, India, Iran, Thailand, Turkey, the Philippines) submitted a tentative project proposal. Evaluations and reactions by workshop participants were also elicited. (LY)
