Innovative Projects in Extra-Mural Education. Report on DES-Funded Projects 1985-89.
de Wit, Pamela
This document contains descriptions of 38 projects that were undertaken between 1985 and 1989 by English university continuing education departments. The projects were considered innovative and were funded under new arrangements that required competitive bids or encouraged high student enrollment and low unit costs. The project descriptions appear in two sections, one called University Outreach to New Students and the other called Science and Technology: New Subjects and New Methods. Within each section, the project descriptions are grouped into 10 topics. The first section's topics are: access, adult self-development, ethnic groups, disabled adults, women, urban areas, and rural areas; the second section's topics are: scientific literacy, information technology, and audiovisual technologies. A third section of the document describes in detail the plan under which these projects were funded and includes material on administration, recommendations, evaluation of the projects, and future prospects. Appendices contain a copy of the questionnaire on which data were gathered for this report and a list of project proposals that failed to win funding. (CML)
