Handbook for Adult Education Instructors. Series No. 133.
Indian Adult Education Association, New Delhi.
A nationwide Adult Education Programme (NAEP), with the object of providing adult education to 100 million adults within five years, was inaugurated in India in October, 1978. A conference held in New Delhi in June, 1979, discussed the problems of training enough adult education instructors to implement the program throughout the country, especially in rural areas. In order to aid instructors, this handbook was created to serve as a ready and rough reference book for practitioners. The handbook avoids theories and ennumerates in simple and easy-to-understand language steps to be taken to organize adult education programs. The eight chapters of the book provide a guide for the following: nature of adult education, content of the NAEP, role and duties of the instructor, organization of adult education programs, adult learning theory, teaching and learning aids, evaluation, and follow-up programs. Appendixes contain lists of terminologies used in adult education, agencies providing training facilities, norms of literacy, survey forms, development departments and officials, sample pages of attendance and stock registers, a bibliography, and a list of conference participants.
