Dissemination of the Project's Findings. National Seminar (12th, Luxembourg, February 22, 1989). The CDCC's Project No. 8: "Innovation in Primary Education."
A day-long study session was held in Luxembourg to publicize the results of Project No. 8, Innovation in Primary Education (IPE), of the Council of Europe's Council for Cultural Cooperation. Participants were instructed to view the session in relation to efforts to disseminate the results of the IPE and the revision of Luxembourg's primary school curriculum. The session, which was conducted in French, was attended by about 70 educators, including school inspectors, designers of the new primary curriculum, representatives of primary teachers' trade unions, and representatives of post-primary education. Intitial addresses concerned curriculum revision and the aims of primary education. An account of the IPE was offered. Lectures on new information technologies, science teaching at primary school, and innovation in mathematics teaching were then given. General discussion explored expectations of post-primary education, the new curriculum, organization of the school day, the role of head teachers, parents as part of the educational community, contact schools, and an international information network on education. Included in the appendices are the seminar program, an address by the Minister for Education and Youth, and a list of participants. (RH)
