>ABOUT TECHNET
>TechNet is a program of the World Bank designed to encourage understanding
>and promote the use of science and technology (S&T) in development.
>TechNet hosts electronic conferences, "Think Tanks," to discuss how
>science and technology can effectively be used for development.  Expert
>views are sought on how the World Bank and others can promote S&T
>contribution to economic development.  TechNet's Think Tanks are
>administered by Volunteers in Technical Assistance, a non-government
>organization.  For more information on TechNet, please visit our Web-Site
>at http://www.worldbank.org/html/fpd/technet/.
>
>ABOUT THE TOPIC
>The World Bank, together with the European Union and the Institut de la
>Mediteranee, will hold an international conference on "Learning Society &
>Accreditation for Competencies in the Mediterranean Countries."  This
>conference will take place in early February 1998.  As a prelude to this
>conference, TechNet is hosting two Think Tanks on "A new paradigm for a
>learning society" and "Defining an accreditation system for a learning
>society."  The results of these Think Tanks will be summarized and
>presented to the February conference.
>The Think Tank "A new paradigm for a learning society" will define the
>learning society concept, discuss how this concept is being shaped by
>changes in information technology, what the opportunities are for distance
>education, and what the learning society paradigm means for developing
>countries.  It will then address what role an accreditation system plays
>in this context, and how accreditation can be changed from being
>diploma-driven to competencies and skills-driven.  This raises such
>questions as how to define competencies, standards, and skills based on
>labor market requirements.  It will also serve to map existing experiences
>in developed and developing countries in this area.
>The Think Tank "Defining an accreditation system for a learning society"
>will discuss how to develop the accreditation system for the relevant
>competencies in the Mediterranean region, how to engage developing
>countries in this process and the appropriate roles by the private sector,
>professional organizations, universities, et al in the accreditation
>system.
>
>FORMAT OF THE THINK TANKS
>A Think Tank is a conference discussion conducted entirely via e-mail.
>Twenty to thirty experts from universities, governments, non-governmental
>organizations, the private sector, and the World Bank will discuss each
>topic for about four weeks.  In the first two weeks, the Think Tanks will
>be restricted to the experts, but their comments will be "broadcast" to
>everyone who subscribes to the conference.  Then for two weeks, readers
>are encouraged to comment on the previous and current discussion, to pose
>questions, and articulate positions.  All submissions will be available on
>the TechNet Think Tank Web site at http://www.vita.org/technet.
>The Think Tank "A new paradigm for a learning society" will start on
>November 19 and is scheduled to close on December 16, 1997.
>The Think Tank "Defining an accreditation system for a learning society"
>is scheduled to start on November 24 and is scheduled to close on December
>22, 1997 (to be confirmed).
