Newsletter, International Development Education Program, Volume II, Number 2, July 1972.
Tate, Sean, Ed.
The newsletter promotes graduate study, research, and international service activities, including seminars, workshops and other specifically designed programs on campus or abroad, facilitating the role of educational institutions and programs in international development. Typical newsletter items include current programs, faculty and program notes, and news from the field. In this issue, a lead article describes El Macaro, a rural teacher-training institution in Venezuela. Information on the background of the institution and on more recent developments are provided, including the establishment of a teachers' materials production center and reorganization of El Macaro. There are future plans in Venezuela to build and establish at least seven more institutions similar to this one. Volume II, presenting the first of a series of reviews of new materials in the field, offers an annotated bibliography of publications by universities, educational centers, and private publishers. Forthcoming newsletters are announced for October 1972 and February 1973. Those interested in receiving the newsletter should request that their name be placed on the mailing list. (Author/SJM)
