Aspects of Nonformal Education in the Pacific Region.
ASPBAE Courier Service, n24 Apr 1982
This publication contains 10 articles on nonformal adult education in the Pacific Region. The first describes the Mobile Training Team in Micronesia and its strengths and weaknesses. The second article introduces the Micronesian Seminar and an examination of its methods of combating social problems through seminars and workshops. The next two articles describe methods of measuring quality of life, developed for use in the Solomon Islands to focus villagers' attention on ways to improve their communities--the Development Wheel and the Village Quality of Life Index. The fifth article looks at the Adult Numeracy Project in Papua New Guinea that features use of calculators. Provision of vocational training in rural areas in Papua New Guinea is discussed in the sixth article. The next article describes the work of the Tutu Training Centre, Fiji, in rural adult education. In the eighth article are highlighted problems of women in the East Sepik district of Papua New Guinea, where developments aiding men have diminished the quality of life for women. The ninth article advances a theory for workshop design. Comments upon and quotes from a book and conference on the neglect of nonformal education are provided in the concluding article. (YLB)
