Handbook of Australian Adult Education.
Australian Association of Adult Education.
The aim of this handbook is to provide a quick reference source for a number of different publics. It should be of regular assistance to adult and other educators, personnel officers and social workers, whose advice and help is constantly being sought about the availability of adult education facilities in their own, or in other States. The aim in compiling the Handbook has been to bring together at the National and State levels all the major agencies--university, statutory body, government departments and voluntary bodies--that provide programs of teaching for adults open to members of the public. There are listed also the large number of governmental or voluntary bodies which undertake educational work in special areas. The Handbook also lists all the major public institutions--State Libraries, Museums, and Art Galleries--that serve importantly to supplement the direct teaching of adults by their collections. New entries include brief accounts of adult education in the Northern Territory and in the Territory of Papua-New Guinea, and the systems of Colleges of Advanced Education. (Author/CK)
