Summary

Different approaches to economic assistance for developing nations have been used over the years. These basically involved building institutional structures such as those found in developed nations and the introduction of investments and industrialization. The Interuniversity Research Program on Institution Building studied various aspects of institution-building, development, and problems encountered in building agricultural research, teaching, and service institutions in developing countries. The need for more knowledge of technical assistance methodology resulted in various research projects to study ways of improving technical assistance and institution-building based on a new model. A design perspective approach to institution-building concerns effective arrangements within the domain of technical assistance encompassing implementation and evaluation. Designing is a unique process for a particular problem where technical assistance is often affected by the characteristics of agencies and enviornments. Questions concern the applicability of the design approach on a practical level, its basic assumptions, and what impact it might have on the field of education. (EC)
