Dissemination of the Project's Findings. National Seminar--Norway (9th, Kristiansand, Norwary, October 13-14, 1988). The CDCC's Project No. 8: "Innovation in Primary Education."
This document reports on a conference that disseminated to Norwegian parents and educators the findings of the Council of Europe's Council for Cultural Cooperation's Project No. 8, "Innovation in Primary Education." The main address was given by Professor Maurice Galton of the School of Education, University of Leicester, United Kingdom, who described the core dimensions of the project and the results of an analysis of the styles of innovation reported in case studies. A Norwegian perspective on Project No. 8 was offered by Mrs. Laila Brunvand, the rector of Vardasen Primary School, Kristiansand. The rector summarized the main features of the project's contact school plan and described the role of the Vardasen school in the project. Participants discussed issues in groups organized around the topics of the process of starting school--length of school days, science education, differentiated teaching, and leadership in schools. A second address, by Chief Director Oddvar Vormeland, of the Royal Ministry of Church and Education, concerned a rational framework for the development of primary education. Concluding material includes reports on group discussions and the final plenary session, in which speakers gave their views on priorities for the future. (RH)
