Adult Education in the Nordic Countries. Denmark.
A broad overview of adult education in Denmark is presented in the document. Eight general topics are discussed, and include: (1) Aims, providing background information on national training schemes and agencies; (2) Paths to Adult Learning, systematizing the many adult education organizations, activities, and opportunities under the headings of general liberal non-vocational, competence based, labour market-oriented, and the self-learner; (3) The Organs of Public Administration, outlining various administrative agencies; (4) Co-ordination and Co-operation, examining methods for interagency co-operation and public relations; (5) Financing, in terms of distribution principles, general liberal non-vocational adult education, qualifying adult education, labor market relations, self-study, diverse expenses, and special arrangements; (6) Training of Teachers Within Adult Education, examining current and alternative training methods; (7) Research in the Field of Adult Education, presenting a brief review; (8) Concerning Teaching Aids, examining their availability and distribution. Tables supplement the text. A trend towards increasing priority for adult education is noted. It is stated that Denmark lacks current systematic research on adult education and the reader is warned that the document must be taken with reservation, being of necessity based far too much on a subjective evaluation.
