New Trends in Chemistry Teaching, Volume IV.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
Differing somewhat in format from the previous three volumes of this series, this work contains analyses of trends and problems in various aspects of chemistry instruction as presented by authors from around the world, but is printed entirely in English. Materials for this publication resulted from a UNESCO organized International Congress on the Improvement of Chemical Education held in Wroclaw, Poland, September 17-22, 1973. The works of 13 authors appear in this publication; eight papers under the heading of "Factors affecting the design of chemistry courses and programmes," and the remainder being classified as "Trends in other aspects of chemical education." In its entirety, this work is intended (1) to identify and analyze present problems and recent trends in chemical education at all levels, within and outside the formal educational system, and (2) to outline a proposed four-year cooperative plan of action among educational organizations for the further improvement of chemical education.
