New Directions in Education. Proceedings from the Moton Conference on Aid to Developing Countries.
Friedrich-Naumann Foundation, New York, NY.; Academy for Educational Development, Washington, DC.
Twenty senior educators and nationals from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, the Americas, and Europe, met to discuss new directions in education for development. The agenda was bound by three broad themes: new directions and concepts in education to meet development needs; appropriate high technology; and new collaboration between donor and recipient countries. Six purposes consistent with the three topics were outlined: (1) to examine the criticism of current international development projects and policies; (2) to look at the question of greater collaboration between donor and recipient countries in the design and implementation of development projects; (3) to develop and recommend policies that may enhance the effectiveness of development strategies; (4) to outline areas for innovation and research; (5) to propose possible areas for institutional linkages between donor and recipient countries; and (6) to examine interdonor collaboration. Section one of the document summarizes several themes which emerged from the conference. Section two contains nine papers presented at the conference. Finally, section three provides transcriptions from the recorded comments of participants, without attribution, as a way of conveying the freshness and direction of thought. A list of participants and their addresses is included. (GEA)
