In: UNESCO. Regional Office for Asia and Oceania. Population Education Clearing House. Population education as integrated into development programs: a non-formal approach. Bangkok, Thailand, UNESCO Regional Office for Asia and Oceania, 1980. 19 p. (Series 1, Pt. 7)The population education documents and materials abstracted in this section focusing on curriculum and instructional materials are primarily meant for practitioners--teachers, trainers, extension workers, curriculum and material developers, whose role of disseminating population education concepts via the face-to-face approach is greatly enhanced by the use of the more impersonal forms of communication. The materials were selected to provide practitioners with a recommended list of teaching/learning tools and materials which they can use in their work. These materials come in the form of handbooks, manuals, guidebooks, packages, kits and reports. They cover all aspects of materials development, including the procedures in developing various types of materials and showing how population education concepts can be integrated into the various development themes. They also describe teaching/learning and training methods that are participatory in nature--games and simulations, role playing, problem solving, self-awareness exercises, communications sensitivity, human relations, projective exercises, programmed instructions and value clarification. In addition the abstracts provide a general summary of what curriculum areas can be used as entry points for population education concepts.
The Family Planning Communication Project in the University of the Philippines: the training component.
In: Middleton J, ed. Population education in the Asian Region: a conference on needs and directions. [Honolulu, East-West Center], 1974 Jun. 179-83.The University of the Philippines Institute of Mass Communication officially launched the Family Planning Communication Project on December 29, 1971. Funds were provided by the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA), and Unesco is the executing agency. Counterpart support is to be provided by the government of the Philippines. The project is being implemented as an integral part of the activities of the Institute. The project objectives are the following: to develop communications media materials for use in the field, training and innovative research based on the socioeconomic and psycho-cultural conditions prevailing in the various areas of coverage of the national family planning program; to create innovative approaches in family planning communication based on sound experimentation in the laboratory and duplicated in the field; to provide trainers and influence groups in family planning with training on the philosophy and skills of interpersonal and mass communication; and to assist governmental and private agencies in their family planning communication problems. 4 committees have been established to carry out the activities of the project. Prototype leaflets and posters have been pretested for cover and content presentation. The 1st year of research operations was devoted almost totally to collating and synthesizing data related to family planning. In 1973 the project staff conducted 4 training seminars and 3 training workshops. The project components of curriculum and materials, teacher training, research and evaluation, organization and administration, and involvement with international agencies are reviewed. Future program directions are identified along with project needs. The project will continue to assist the national population program and the various organizations working in population communication and will extend its outreach to the Asian region. The needs of the project in terms of international assistance appear to have been met.
