Basic Readings in Australian Adult Education.
Wesson, Alfred, Ed.
This collection of readings was compiled to provide background information on adult education in Australia, as well as to indicate future aims. The papers discuss goals in adult education; the government's part in adult education; and institutionalizing adult education in universities and in other bodies. Institutions that offer adult education programs are named and their programs discussed. Methods used for teaching these programs are described, and standards utilized in these programs are presented. Surveys of the students who participate in adult education classes are described as to results. Appraisals are made of adult education programs from 1944 to 1965. A subject index is provided. (DB)
