Event Details

A Centre for International Education Research and UNEVOC seminar

WHEN LIBERAL ADULT EDUCATION AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING MEET:  THE FOLK DEVELOPMENT COLLEGES OF TANZANIA 

Presented by Professor Alan Rogers, visiting professor in the School of Education

Alan Rogers has just returned from a visit to the Folk Development Colleges in Tanzania after twenty years. In this seminar, after briefly outlining the transition of these institutions from their origins in the Scandinavian Folk High Schools into rather narrow and elementary vocational training institutions, he asks whether a liberal adult education curriculum can sit comfortably with a vocational training agenda.  Underlying these discussions are issues of power and politics - who decides what shall be provided for whom?  And whether
educational systems can generate a life of their own.  

Refreshments will be provided.
