Establishing an Institution Teaching by Correspondence: Experiments and Innovations in Education No. 17.
Erdos, Renee F.
The process of establishing a correspondence teaching institution is described in the document, and is largely based upon experience gained from the National Correspondence Institution, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Beginning with the initial conception and discussion for establishing such an institution, the document examines all planning and organizational stages, including location, staff establishment, equipment, communication, facilities, enrollment, teaching administrative procedures, research and evaluation, and planning for future development. Nine figures supplement the text. It is stated that the techniques discussed should have universal application in any scheme for establishing a correspondence teaching system largely for adult, rural populations who have already achieved a certain level of education but have limited access to other educational resources.
