L'Evaluation Dans L'Education Non Formelle, David C. Kinsey Jan 1980

L'Evaluation Dans L'Education Non Formelle, David C. Kinsey

Non-Formal Education

L'intérêt que llon a apporté au cours de la décennie passée au développement de l'éducation non formelle n'a pas été par une diffusion suffisante de documentation à ce sujet, soit en français, soit en espagnol. Souvent la documentation qui existe n'est ni largement disponible, ni écrite de façon utile pour les practiciens d'éducation non formelle. Grâce à son travail dans la formation du personnel pour l'éducation non formelle dans les régions francophone et hispanophone du monde, Creative Associates a pris vivement conscience de cette situation.

Creative associates est donc fier de ses efforts d ...


Nonformal Education As An Empowering Process With Case Studies From Indonesia And Thailand, Suzanne Kindervatter Jan 1979

Nonformal Education As An Empowering Process With Case Studies From Indonesia And Thailand, Suzanne Kindervatter

Non-Formal Education

This study develops a role for nonformal education consonant with recent thinking on Third World development: nonformal education as an empowering process. A consideration of nonformal education's relationship to the new concepts of development is particularly important today. The effectiveness of traditional models of development has been seriously questioned and new approaches have been defined. As a development sector, nonformal education should adapt to these new definitions.

The first part of the study establishes a rationale for the role of empowering. The second part evolves both the concept and practice of nonformal education as an empowering process.

The Demystification Of Non-Formal Education: A Critique And Suggestions For A New Research Direction, John C. Bock, George J. Papagiannis Jan 1975

The Demystification Of Non-Formal Education: A Critique And Suggestions For A New Research Direction, John C. Bock, George J. Papagiannis

Non-Formal Education

The purpose of this paper is to initiate an inquiry into a currently "fashionable" educational phenomenon presently referred to as "non-formal education." It is hoped that the paradigm resented will provide yet another interpretive perspective by which we can more fully understand the consequences of this educational phenomenon. It is a major contention of this paper that a more conceptually rigorous approach will enable us to understand better how non-formal education might contribute to or inhibit social change and development in societies undergoing rapid modernization.

2. We made agreements with six organizations to use the materials with our assistance. These included the department of Adult Education, a coop federation, an Ecuadorean volunteer organization, a training organization, community groups, and radio school program. About a dozen other ...
