Ward, Ted W.; Herzog, William A., Jr.
This document is part of a series dealing with nonformal education. Introductory information is included in document SO 008 058. The focus of this report is on the learning effectiveness of nonformal education. Chapter 1 compares effective learning in a formal and nonformal environment. Chapter 2 develops a systems model for designers of learning experiences within nonformal education. The third chapter specifically looks at one part of the systems model through examination of a prototype in Brazil. Chapter 4 emphasizes the relationship of evaluation to increased learning effectiveness. The fifth chapter illustrates the use of evaluation and the design of the media-mix for effective instructional delivery in a case study from Mexico. Chapter 6 reviews and relates research on the diffusion of innovation to the problem of learning effectiveness in nonformal education. The seventh chapter is a case study of the transformation and development of education in China since the revolution. Of special interest in this section is the reduction in the distinction between formal and nonformal education in China. The authors examine this trend and its relationship to the reward system of education and the reward systems of the society as a whole. (DE)
