The report of the Eighth Regional Consultation Meeting on the Asian Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (APEID) reviews APEID's activities for 1981-82 and proposed third-cycle program (1982-86), and includes group reports on universalization of primary education, promotion of scientific and technological creativity, and information, communication support and functioning of the APEID network. APEID activities for 1981-82 are listed, including development of distance learning materials for teacher education, and seminars on agricultural education and rural development. The 1982-86 APEID program, including recommended modifications, is outlined, and major educational policy trends in APEID countries are summarized. A group report on universalization of primary education discusses access to education, retention/completion rates, repeaters, dropouts, achievement standards, guidelines for national studies, strategies and activities at regional/national levels, and planned activities for 1983-84. The report on promotion of scientific and technological creativity (with focus on science for all) describes past efforts in science education and issues in development of comprehensive "Science for All" programs, defines "all" and "science," and covers learning needs, delivery systems, personnel training, evaluation, supervision, equipment, and regional cooperation. A third report discusses information development/dissemination within APEID, functions of national development groups (NDG), development of communications support, and APEID's 1983-84 program. Guidelines for NDG's are included.
