Book one is basically the theory of Paulo Freire on developing critical awareness and how to put this theory into practice. Book two is focused on the skills necessary for participatory education. To break the 'culture of silence', people need to gain a sense of self-confidence and know that what they think is important. Therefore methods to involve the group actively are critical in group leadership, as are ways of clarifying and implementing the goals of the group. Book three deals with the social analysis necessary to develop critical awareness and long-term planning and with steps needed for building solidarity in people's movements. --from Preface.

It recognises that the only changes which effectively transform the lives of poor people are those in which they have been active participants. This book, and the three earlier books in the Training for Transformation series, give many proved and practical ways of getting this process started. Book 4 focuses on five issues which have become more and more prominent in the concerns of communities throughout the world: the environment; gender and development; ethnic and racial conflict; intercultural understanding; building participatory governance. Each section contains a rich selection of relevant material designed to stimulate interest and debate, including simulations, real life stories, telling statistics, news articles and poetry and drama from local communities. The authors have drawn on their direct experience of working on community development programmes in South Africa and the USA, as well as feedback from many other countries where the Training for Transformation approach has been adopted. The book is divided into easy to follow modules which can be covered in sequence or in any order. All the exercises have been extensively tested in the field and have been used successfully with groups in many different countries. Training for Transformation Book 4 will be ideal for adult education workers, social workers, community development workers, church workers and trade union educators, and all organizations and individuals concerned with the process of transforming society.

This book explores how education along with training and skill development are vital to building a sustainable future. While half of the world’s population now is urban, in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, the proportions of rural people range from 55 to 70 per cent. In this context, education is seen as a key instrument for shaping and fulfilling the goal of rural transformation. The book focuses on the links between education and rural transformation, seeking to underscore the inexorable forces of change rural communities face and how education and training, by equipping people with appropriate knowledge and skills and fostering values of human dignity, can expand their choices and capabilities to exercise these choices. UNESCO International Research and Training Centre for Rural Education (INRULED) decided to examine closely the issues of skill development within its broad mission of exploring concepts, policy and practices in education for rural transformation. The confluence of global forces and national situations, especially in the poorer countries and regions of the world, prompted UNESCO-INRULED to take this decision. These forces and factors include persistent and growing gaps between supply and demand for jobs and employment for young people, growing vulnerabilities and risks for poor people, threats to food security, and the urgency of building a sustainable green future.
This volume of New Directions for Institutional Research provides practical insight and guidance to campus leaders who are attempting to accelerate the transformation of their campuses to meet the challenges and opportunities of the Knowledge Age. This insight is drawn from case studies and vignettes from nearly twenty campuses that have succeeded in leveraging the forces of transformation on their campuses. They have achieved this leverage through multifaceted change initiatives that involve a collection of actions: (1) developing vision and strategy for the Knowledge Age, (2) conducting campuswide dialogue on change, (3) dramatically enhancing information technology infrastructure and skills, (4) redirecting existing institutional processes, (5) crafting new learning processes and products, and (6) changing the campus culture. The volume concludes with a presentation of the five families of basic competencies necessary for particular academic programs or campuses to succeed in the twenty-first century: (1) planning and change processes operating at Knowledge Age standards of timeliness, customization, and flexibility; (2) advanced IT infrastructure and skills in its use; (3) a new generation of tools for learning, interactivity, certification of mastery, and personal productivity; (4) new financial paradigms; and (5) supercharged strategic alliances. This is the 94th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Institutional Research. For more information on the series, please see the Journals and Periodicals page.
