A 3-day conference was convened in Zagreb, Yugoslavia for the purpose of disseminating results of the Council of Europe's Council for Cultural Cooperation's (CDCC) Project 8, Innovation in Primary Education (IPE). Changes in theoretical approaches to and organizational practices of primary education in Yugoslavia were discussed. A total of 61 educators attended. A review of the IPE project was followed by lectures on: (1) the need for innovation in primary school, sources of and resistance to change, and variables related to the introduction of innovations; (2) the rationale and implementation strategies of the IPE; (3) theoretical bases and empirical testing of experimental models of internal reform of primary schools; (4) major issues and changes in educational policy for primary school in Yugoslavia in an international perspective; and (5) the traditional role of head teachers, their contemporary role as agents of innovation, and demands for innovation. After the lectures, a number of participants made short presentations describing innovations in Yugoslavia. The presentations were then discussed. Summarized in this report are lectures, participants' contributions and discussion of them, and rapporteurs' reports. (RH)
