The Place of Education by Correspondence in Permanent Education.
Wedell, E. G.
The significance of permanent education and correspondence education for each other is obvious. As educational provision of the traditional type has expanded, so has the demand for education. One feature which most correspondence education systems have in common is that they cater mainly for adults. This survey attempts to assess the present situation in this field in the member States of the Council of Europe. It is based on information supplied by the member States. The significant elements only in the various national systems are presented. Statistics are not presented in standardized format. The report follows the particular characteristic of correspondence education, namely, its orientation toward its clients. The deductive approach is used. Chapter II identifies the correspondence. Chapter III considers the institutions which exist to meet the needs expressed by the clients. Chapter IV deals with the educational methods employed by these institutions and traces the development of educational methodology in this field. Matters of external control and assessment are treated in Chapter V. In Chapter VI, some possible future developments are outlined. In particular, this last chapter deals with the growth of international bodies concerned to standardize practices and raise the level of professionalism in the correspondence field. (Author/CK)
