Seminar on Education for International Understanding.
Australian National Advisory Committee for Unesco, Canberra.
This report presents three seminar papers and associated discussion session reports from the Adelaide seminar which focused on education as it relates to the advancement of international understanding. In the first paper, A. M. Thomas stressed the necessity for continuing cooperation among nations to solve problems of friction and poverty. Education in areas such as human rights could bring progress in international understanding. T. Miller, in the second paper, examined the implications for education of the development of international education. He argued first, that individuals need to be helped through education to develop to their full potential before they can handle concepts of international understanding adequately; secondly, that curriculum units need to be developed which deal satisfactorily with international understanding concepts. The third paper, with an economic bias, presented by Derek Healey, analyzed the community's responsibilities in the development of international understanding. Discussion sessions centered on the implications of teaching for international understanding in both the primary and secondary schools in the areas of curricula, teaching emphases, teaching-learning methods and environments.
