World Perspective Case Descriptions on Educational Programs for Adults: Czechoslovakia.
Skoda, Kamil; Hartl, Pavel
This document contains two case studies of Czechoslovakian adult education: (1) Czechoslovakian Adult Education (Skoda) and (2) the House of Culture and Its Function in Adult Education (Hartl). Each study begins with a "face sheet" on which is recorded basic information about the entity studied and the case study itself. About half of the Skoda paper describes the historical and structural setting of adult education in Czechoslovakia. Additional sections describe outcomes (goals and benefits) and process (planning, methods, improvement, and participation). A five-item bibliography is included. Major sections in the Hartl paper describe the structure of Czech adult education, the place of the houses of culture within that structure, and the location, staff, funding, and activities of one particular House of Culture situated in a little town in Central Bohemia. Activities include lectures, courses, excursions, concerts, exhibitions, and film club. Lecturers and organizers, educational methods, and evaluation results are described and conclusions and recommendations provided. In addition to the case descriptions, this document includes information on the World Perspective case study project, indexes of all cases by country and by category, and guidelines for contributors.
