Suggested Areas Wherein the School of Adult Learning Might Operate.
The University Extension Department in Botswana would operate in the field of adult education. Adult studies would be programs of relevant educational courses in the evenings, on a day-release basis, on weekends, and, for short periods, residentially. Training would cover both the Credit Union work now being carried out in Lesotho and Swaziland, as well as training in methods of adult education; university and other appropriate staff would be secured to train working people--normally in government--to be more effective in their jobs. These activities would use face-to-face teaching methods, group-learning methods, and the available mass media. The methods would be applied to the three countries involved (Botswana, Lesotho, and Swaziland) as and when it would be useful and agreeable to do so. The Botswana School of Adult Learning (SOAL) would operate nationally in Botswana with and through existing organizations. One service the SOAL might offer is local radio broadcasts. It might disseminate information on the existence of conferences. Permanent and temporary personnel would be employed to perform these functions. (CK)
