Non-Formal Education Information Center. Program of Studies and Technical Assistance in Non-Formal Education. A Report of Progress and Recommendations for the Future and Annual Supplements.
Claffey, Joan M.; And Others
This series of progress reports documents the evolution and growth of the Non-Formal Education Information Center since its inception in 1974 in terms of the people and organizations it serves, the kinds of requests it receives, and the services it provides. Illustrative examples of individuals, organizations in its international network, and requests are used throughout the reports. Observations and characteristics of general and special task requests in the first progress report are evaluated through trend analyses in the 1977 and 1978 annual supplements. Tables indicate network distribution by region and organizational affiliation. Emphasized is the increasing synergistic participation within the network, a trend supported by NFE in order to increase the awareness of, and opportunities for, the exchange of ideas and practices among people in all facets of development work. Appendices to the first progress report list organizations within the NFE network, present the 2-page NFE Information Center Brochure, and provide examples of user correspondence. Progress report supplements for 1977 and 1978 include alternatives for future courses of action. (SW)
