New Perspectives in Correspondence Study in Europe.
Peters, Otto
New developments and the future of correspondence teaching and correspondence education in Europe are discussed in this document. A questionnaire was used to gather information about changes which have taken place or future changes envisaged by correspondence school managers. It revealed that important developments included the introduction of correspondence study methods into the universities and colleges of the East European countries; and increased use of innovative teaching methods-- programed instruction, computers, experiments with TV, radio, and integrated discussion groups. Uncertainty was expressed regarding the future of correspondence instruction because of interest of big firms and American corporations, and the trend towards centralization and concentration. For the future the writer foresaw accredited and efficient correspondence schools cooperating in many ways with universities and colleges, ministries of education and other state institutions, broadcasting corporations, and educational sciences. The cooperation would take many organizational forms that would cross interstate and national boundaries. Projects would make use of latest technological developments in their respective disciplines and the work would be guided by theories of distance and mass instruction. (PT)
