Towards an Authentic Development: The Role of Adult Education. Report on the International Council for Adult Education Conference (Paris, France, October 1982).
Healy, Patrick, Ed.
This report of the Paris conference of the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) consists of edited versions of all the written reports of the various sessions of the conference, together with a general introduction and other supporting material. The eight chapters of the report contain 31 speeches, policy group working reports, workshop reports, opening and closing addresses, a set of recommendations, and a list of participants. As summarized in the papers, the theme and topics of the conference focused on the dynamics of reaffirmation and renewal: renewal of the efforts and commitment to people in most need and not yet served; renewal of adult education as the key to the authentic development of oneself and society; and renewal of adult education as a social movement. Specifically, the conference was called to (1) support and strengthen the renewal of the intellectual and political basis for adult education; (2) prepare adult education, public education, and public opinion for the 1985 UNESCO World Conference on Adult Education; (3) broaden participation of related organizations, individuals, and movements in the issues of adult education; and (4) demonstrate the actual and potential effectiveness of adult education in attacking critical issues that affect the world. Topics covered in the report include education and work, primary health care, women's issues, rural education, literacy education, formal and nonformal education, communication and culture, education in prisons, new technology, migration and immigration problems, the history of adult education, and evaluation and participation in adult education.
