ATKINSON, RICHARD C.; CRONBACH, LEE J.
A RESEARCH TRAINING CONFERENCE ON LEARNING WAS HELD FOR 37 PSYCHOLOGISTS AND EDUCATIONAL RESEARCHERS. THE 6-WEEK CONFERENCE CENTERED ITS ACTIVITIES ON SUCH TOPICS AS LANGUAGE LEARNING, COMPUTER SIMULATION, INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES DESIGN, ATTITUDE AND PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT, AND CURRICULUM EVALUATION. LECTURES AND TALKS WERE OFFERED BY INSTRUCTORS AND VISITING CONSULTANTS. TOPICS DISCUSSED INCLUDED (1) LANGUAGE LEARNING, (2) COMPUTER SIMULATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROCESSES, (3) DESIGN OF INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES AND EXPERIMENTATION ON LEARNING, (4) THE NATURE OF APTITUDE, ATTITUDE DEVELOPMENT AND CHANGE, (5) PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT IN COLLEGE, AND (6) CURRICULUM EVALUATION. ONE OF THE CONCLUSIONS DRAWN WAS THAT A GENERAL ACQUAINTANCE WITH SIGNIFICANT CURRENT WORK WAS ACHIEVED. DEVELOPMENT OF COMPETENCE IN DEPTH, HOWEVER, WAS NOT AS SUCCESSFUL. IDENTIFICATION OF AREAS OF STUDY AND MOTIVATION TO DO RESEARCH WERE INDICATED AS ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE CONFERENCE. (RS)
