Non-formal Education: An Annotated International Bibliography. Praeger Special Studies in International Economics and Development.
Paulston, Rolland G., Ed.
This annotated bibliography is a compilation of selected materials that illustrate recent thinking about theory and practice in nonformal education in both developing and developed countries. The work is designed to enable professionals and nonspecialist educators to define the field, carry out research, and design strategies for maximizing nonformal education's contribution to individual and national development. The bibliography lists 875 books, articles, papers, reports, speeches, dissertations, and bibliographies published between 1910 and 1972, but the majority date from the 1960s and early 1970s. A preface examines nonformal education, as it relates to the entire educational sphere, and identifies research needs. Four chapters illustrate the aims, participants, and content of nonformal education activities. These include items which describe basic issues, types of organizations conducting programs, target learner populations, and content areas such as agriculture, homemaking, and industry. Two chapters list national and regional studies, directories, serials, and periodicals. Included in a seventh chapter are items describing instructional methodologies and materials such as media, workshops, demonstrations, and programmed materials. (AV)
