Asian Regional Seminar on Polyvalent Adult Education Centre. The Shramik Vidyapeeth: An Evaluative Study of a Polyvalent Centre.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand).; Ministry of Education and Social Welfare, New Delhi (India).
An evaluative review of the Polyvalent Adult Education Centre in Bombay, India, is presented. Objectives of the evaluation include: (1) to assess the extent and type of planning undertaken by the Vidyapeeth in developing a polyvalent approach; and (2) to assess the extent of benefit obtained by the participants. Planning for a course of training began with identification of training needs. The courses devised were largely "non-technical" in nature. An analysis of the planning process with respect to the ten courses offered shows that where the courses were conceived of by the Vidyapeeth the cooperative agencies assumed on the whole a relatively passive role. In the planning stage, several factors were taken into account: (1) the level of the trainee, (2) the relationship of the syllabus to the life conditions of the trainee, and (3) a minimum size for the sub-units of a course. The assessment revealed that about half the courses were reasonably well organized and the other half were poorly organized. More careful planning is recommended. (CK)
