Book Summary:

A study examined the training needs of women working in moderate-sized enterprises owned by their husbands. Information collected from interviews with spouses of business owners in Belgium, Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, and Italy confirmed the original hypothesis that in the kind of enterprise studied it is the man who owns the business and the wife who assumes various duties without having the necessary training. In Belgium, Denmark, West Germany, and France special educational opportunities, consisting mainly of courses in administrative functions, were available for the co-working spouse. Although actual statistical data were not available, the consensus among the co-working spouses interviewed was that they do not avail themselves of existing educational opportunities to a satisfactory extent. Reasons cited for failure to participate in available educational programming included lack of time, distance to school or college, time and form of courses, price, course content, and attitudes toward education. The general picture concerning the role of the children in these enterprises was that they do not wish to follow in their parents' footsteps. (Appended to this report is a discussion of the treatment within the European community of the educational situation of co-working wives of business owners in rural communities.) (MN)

Book Summary:

Combining an accessible presentation of the underlying theory of transfer of learning which explains how to put theory into practice, this is a text which is relevant to 'teaching for transfer' in any professional or vocational context. The first part of the book looks at: * what transfer of learning means * how it operates * the implications for teaching * issues such as assessment, competence, outcomes. In the second part contributors present case studies from social work which show how specific teaching methods can be successfully used to make the maximum use of the student's previous experience. These include: * personal construct psychology * enquiry and action learning * intentional observation * critical incident analysis * reflective diaries * process recording * information technology. Information on each teaching method is presented in enough detail to allow the educator to go away and use it.

Book Summary:

China is experiencing an unprecedented phenomenon: breakneck industrialization on a scale and at a pace not seen before. It is trying to achieve in just a few decades what Western nations took more than a century to do. The arrival in the country’s cities of tens of millions of rural dwellers, at most semi-skilled, has put huge strain on the country’s system of vocational education, known as TVET. How have the Chinese authorities and their education administrators responded? Is China’s TVET system adapting to the rapidly evolving needs of its industry? Using the province of Yunnan as a subject, this detailed case study is a closely argued and sanguine analysis of the operation of TVET in China. The authors deployed a set of internationally comparable criteria to offer a searching assessment of current performance, at the same time documenting areas of strength and weakness. The question the authors’ methodology answers is how well China’s TVET system is performing compared to technical and vocational education structures in other countries. In fact, they discover that in Yunnan, a province representative of the challenges faced nationwide, much has indeed been done, from a wholesale overhaul of programs to make them relevant to industry requirements, to major investment in infrastructure. Teacher training has been reformed, and take-up of professional master’s and doctoral courses has been encouraged. Joint initiatives with bodies such as UNESCO have improved training and vocational education at high school level. While there is a strong international history of such comparative evaluations, which are essential for policy makers to benchmark their administration, few studies have included China despite the enormous amount of value that can be learned from that country’s experience. This work will provide vital material for researchers, governments and development agencies alike.
