African-German Cooperation in Educational Research and Planning.
The report presents background information and proceedings from a conference held in Bonn, Germany, in September 1977 to encourage exchange of ideas between African and German educators and government officials. Specifically, the conference served to document the increasing interest of German educators to interact with educators from the third world, to afford insight into German educational aid programs, and to suggest possibilities for cooperative research activities. The proceedings are presented in five sections. Section I explains objectives of the conference. Section II provides an overview of the meeting, identifies major problems of educational aid and joint research, summarizes discussions of plenary and joint sessions, and identifies positive results of the conference. Section III presents a paper in which Dietrich Goldschmidt of the Max Planck Institute for Educational Research in Berlin outlined prerequisites for cooperation in cross-national educational research and planning. Section IV presents a design for a correspondence course in curriculum development. The document concludes with appendices which present a conference program outline, list of conference participants, and a bibliography. (DB)
