Cost-Effective Training Strategy at Field Level Strengthens Influence of Extension Agents in Community.
Development Communication Report, n34 Jun 1981
Communications for Social Development, a regional training program designed by UNICEF to teach field extension agents in developing countries about interpersonal and group communications, is described in the lead article in this issue of Development Communication Report. The strategy employed in the development of this program involves a simple pyramid of resources, with trainers receiving instruction at participating institutions throughout a region and then returning to their home countries to begin training others at two levels--inservice and preservice. Other articles in this issue provide information on (1) a new set of logos designed for the Clearinghouse on Development Communication to illustrate the main developmental sectors covered in this newsletter; (2) the use of folk poetry in Bangladesh to communicate timely messages; (3) a literacy campaign in Venezuela which highlights a multimedia approach; and (4) slow scan television, a technique that makes picture communication possible over inexpensive audio channels such as telephone lines. Book reviews and ERIC resources are also included, as well as a regular feature called "Dilemmas in Country X." (Author/LLS)
