The European Dimension in Education. Thematic Bibliography No. 1/96.
EURYDICE European Unit, Brussels (Belgium).
This booklet provides a selection of the publications on the "European Dimension in Education" included in the documentary archives of the Eurydice European Unit. "European dimension" addresses those documents dealing with educational initiatives whose aim is to promote the European dimension in schools in the context of compulsory education. Only documents published since 1990 are included and generally are published by a European body, an Education Ministry, or a quasi-governmental organization. The two initiatives addressed in this issue include: (1) the network of training institutions (RIF) supported by the European Commission and under which were developed a series of teaching aids, studies, and reports in the 16 sub-networks involving teacher training institutions, universities, and other higher education establishments; and (2) the pilot action in Multi-lateral School Partnerships (MSP) developed jointly between the European Commission and the Member States with the aim to support the establishment of 40 multilateral school partnerships involving some 100 schools working together as projects devoted to multidisciplinary European education. The documents are classified as: (1) official documents; (2) teacher training and trainers; (3) training of school heads; (4) cooperation, mobility and exchanges; (5) teaching material; (6) reference books and other resources; and (7) official education documents published by national authorities.
