This report presents findings of a 3-year study (1994-1997) of post-compulsory educational opportunities for adolescents and adults with disabilities in 10 European countries (Finland, France, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom), Australia, and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Quebec. It is part of a larger study of effective educational and support structures in integrated settings. The first part identifies the main trends in sections on: (1) main characteristics of post-compulsory education, (2) the population under consideration, (3) policies and legislation, (4) transition from schooling, (5) funding, (6) provision, (7) curriculum, (8) support services, (9) information technology, (10) teacher training, (11) community involvement, (12) post-education experience, and (13) the future. The second part of the report synthesizes individual country reports under the same 13 categories. The study found that all the countries have some legislation in place to support post-compulsory education and training of people with disabilities, but that there is much variation in the extent to which this legislation protects people's rights and that people with disabilities continue to be under-represented in post-compulsory education and employment. Appended are a list of working group participants and guidance notes for completing the country questionnaires. (DB)

In April 2003, The Association for Learning Technology (ALT) celebrated its tenth anniversary and this book has been produced in order to commemorate this landmark achievement. It represents a collaboration between key members of ALT and members of ALTs' sister organisations: SURF in Holland and ASCILITE in Australia. The aims of the book are to use the topic of "institutional implementation" to present a review of the impact of learning technology on tertiary education over the past few years; and to highlight and discuss key changes and developments that are shaping present and future activities and consider the implications for individual enthusiasts who work in the field of learning technology. The book outlines the context in which individual enthusiasts have operated and institutional implementation has occurred over the last ten years. Four key themes are highlighted throughout the book: * the individual enthusiast and their role in institutional implementation; * the institutional enthusiast and their role in local and global e-learning initiatives; * finding the evidence to justify enthusiasm and underpin implementation; * reinventing the individual enthusiast.
