Based on two seminars on correspondence study, held by the Dag Hammarskjold Foundation (Uppsala, Sweden) during 1967-1968, this volume consists of lectures delivered at these seminars, together with a selection of essays produced by the participants. The first section reviews the relationship between adult education and economic development, Swedish adult education, and adult education research. The second section deals with the history and development of correspondence study, the writing of correspondence courses, correspondence study program administration, two-way communication in correspondence instruction, and major trends in the field during the decade 1960-1970. The third section focuses specifically on correspondence study programs in operation in many of the independent African nations and their role in national development. An 88 item bibliography, including 25 items specifically related to correspondence study, is appended. (DM)
