Adult Education in Canada.
Kidd, J. R., Ed.
In this document an attempt is made to present an introduction to adult education in Canada. The first section surveys the historical background, attempts to show what have been the objectives of this field, and tries to assess its present position. Section II, which focuses on the relationship among the Canadian Association for Adult Education, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and the National Film Board, reviews the entire field of adult education. Also covered are university extension services, the People's Library of Nova Scotia, and the roles of schools and specialized organizations. Section III deals, in some detail, with selected programs -- the 'Uncommon Schools' which include Frontier College, and Banff School of Fine Arts, and the School of Community Programs. The founders, sponsors, participants, and techniques of Farm Forum are reported in the section on radio and films, which examines the origins, purpose, and background for discussion for Citizens' Forum; the use of documentary films in adult education; Women's Institutes; rural programs such as the Antigonish Movement and the Community Life Training Institute. A bibliography of Canadian writing on adult education is included. (nl)
