European Forum on Educational Administration. Report on the Intervisitation Programme in the Federal Republic of Germany, 1980. (Mainz, West Germany, August 24-31, 1980.)
Hopes, Clive, Ed.
A number of educators formed a network and established the European Forum on Educational Administration. The Forum's program described in this publication had a duration of one week consisting of a day of intensive orientation to the Federal Republic of Germany's education system, two and a half days of visits to educational institutions in the states of Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate, and two full days at a workshop meeting. The two states visited were chosen to demonstrate to the participants contrasting approaches to education taken by state governments composed of different political parties. The workshop was held on the theme, "The Professional Development of School Administrators in Europe." The aims of the workshop were to encourage informal encounters, to arrange informal planned or spontaneous exchanges of experiences, and to work through a set of specific tasks. Time was allowed for interest groups to meet in the afternoons. The appendices contain the results of the workshop, observations and reactions, and the themes of the interest groups as determined by the participants. The official languages during the week were English, French, and German. (Author/MLF)
