Meeting of Experts on Co-operation among Regional Communication Training Institutions. Final Report. Paris, France, April 19-22, l983.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
Cooperation among institutions, ways of facilitating exchanges of specialists and experience, and the joint development of learning resources were examined in a meeting of leaders from 31 regional training institutions from all world regions. Part of UNESCO's long-term concern with the training of media professionals, the meeting opened with a presentation by Antonio Pasquali, Deputy Assistant Director-General for the Communication Sector, who discussed UNESCO's professional training programs. Reports presented by participants in plenary sessions focused on specific regional training problems and needs, with emphasis on the trainer and training methods, curricula, training materials, new techniques, and the need for greater regional and interregional cooperation. Participants then separated into two working groups to formulate recommendations concerning cooperation with international and regional communication training organizations, staff development, curricula, textbooks, and training materials, specialist needs, women in the media, research and evaluation, and clearinghouses and miscellaneous needs. The 36 consolidated recommendations which resulted were adopted by the meeting at its final plenary session. An annex lists participants, observers, organizations of the United Nations System, and the UNESCO Secretariat. (LMM)
