School and Life-long Learning. Wb: Entwicklung 2 (Wb: Development 2). Interskola (Interschool)-Conference Lectures and Group Reports, 1979.
Eccleston, John, Comp.; Schmidt, Ferdinand, Comp.
This booklet contains the lectures and reports of the work-groups of the Interskola-Conference which took place at Dusseldorf July 21-27, 1979, for the purpose of finding out what changes schools must make to motivate pupils for life-long learning. Lectures covered the role of the school in the concept of life-long learning; kinds of learning which are possible after formal schooling and methods to motivate adults to continue their education; the role of community schools in adult education programs; communication between school and students, school and parents, and school and community; relevance of education; experimental uses of closed circuit television in continuing education; vocational education programs; problems of education in rural areas; proposed legislation; proposals for making higher education more accessible and its development more flexible; and suggestions for developing minority cultures, both linguistically and socially. Group Reports covered problems and offered suggestions for reform in the organizational, curricular, and teacher training aspects of life-long learning and in the production of technical aids for instruction. One group covered problems of life-long learning programs in sparsely populated areas and suggested some possible solutions. Summaries in German were added to the lectures and reports. (CM)
