World Perspective Case Descriptions on Educational Programs for Adults: U.S.S.R.
Fishevski, Yuri; And Others
These two case descriptions of adult education programs in the U.S.S.R. are part of a set that reflects a cooperative effort by adult educators to increase international understanding of various educational programs for adults in their societal context. A face sheet for each program provides this information: name, organization, and address of the person who prepared the case description; program name or title; type of program; type of organization with which the case program is associated; and basic characteristics of service. The two case descriptions are Znanie Society (Fishevski) and Continuing Medical Education (Vartanian, Orlov, Nazarova). The Znanie Society is a voluntary organization of scientists and other experts who teach adults in the people's universities as well as through museums and libraries. The second case study discusses types and stages of postgraduate education and methods of promoting continuing medical education. In addition to the case descriptions, this document includes information on the World Perspective case study project as well as indexes of all cases by country and by category. (YLB)
