Study Visit and Seminar: Work-Oriented Adult Literacy Pilot Project in Iran. Final Report.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand).
The Work-Oriented Literacy Pilot Project in Iran is based on the hypothesis that illiteracy on the part of workers hinders the growth of productivity and must therefore be considered as a factor retarding development. The study visit and seminar was intended to enable the participants to gain insight into the potentialities revealed by work oriented functional literacy as a factor of national development. Senior officers from 12 Asian countries participated. The first section of this final report discusses the component variables of the Project: objectives, organization, financing, structure, motivation, teaching methods, advisory and coordinating committees, audiovisual media, followup, evaluation, problems, and prospects. The second section summarizes the discussions which preceded or followed each study visit and the most significant comments from individual reports written by participants after returning to their countries. The appendix discusses briefly the general characteristics of literacy and development. (PT)
