New Trends in Adult Education for Women. Report of the National Seminar (New Delhi, India, February 19-22, 1980). Series No. 135.
Indian Adult Education Association, New Delhi.
A conference was held to discuss concerns in adult education for women, in India, where only 18 percent of the women, compared to 40 percent of the men, are literate. A major theme of the conference was motivation--how does one motivate women to attend literacy education? For what reasons should they become literate? Many women see no need or have no time for education, so only an individual approach will work. The conference participants discussed four main topics: (1) recent trends in adult education and their implications for women's education and motivation; (2) the content and methodology of adult education, with special reference to women's literacy; (3) problems of follow-up and continuing education for literate women; and (4) problems of organizing adult education centers for women. Individual conference papers were given on these topics. (KC)
