Charles Univ., Prague (Czechoslovakia). Documentation and Information Centre of the European Communities.
Topics covered at the international conference on staff and educational development include: the promotion of international curricula and cooperation; institutional support for teaching; successful innovations in course and program design; academic auditing; staff development; the creation of partnerships with business and industry; faculty and staff appraisals; evaluation of instruction competencies; the promotion of experiential learning; and issues and processes involving student development and induction. The seminar results show that, despite the variety of sociopolitical, economic, and cultural conditions of countries represented at the seminar, there exist numerous and often very significant problems that are common to these countries and can therefore be solved on a common basis. Appendices provide the list of participants, the seminar program, the list of working groups, and the list of papers presented. (GLR)
