The international advisory committee of the International Project on Technical and Vocational Education (UNEVOC) held its third session in Paris in October 1995. Advisory committee members and observers from the United Nations' specialized, intergovernmental, and nongovernmental organizations reviewed the major UNEVOC project activities undertaken in the following areas since the second advisory committee meeting (held in December 1994): fostering international exchange of experiences, strengthening national research and development capabilities, and facilitating access to databases/documentation. Special attention was given to the following: case studies on the role of technical/vocational education and regional symposia for policymakers in technical/vocational education that were conducted in various regions throughout the world (Asia and the Pacific, Africa, the Arab States, and Latin America and the Caribbean); activities promoting equal access of girls/women to technical/vocational education; regional activities on curriculum development methodologies; seminars/studies examining cooperation between educational institutions and enterprises; new training technologies for technical/vocational education; national training activities; and cooperation with United Nations organizations. Also discussed was an external evaluation of the UNEVOC Project that is slated for initiation in 1996 and completion in 1997. (Appended are a list of participants' names/addresses.
