THE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF A TYPOLOGY OF UNIVERSITY RESIDENTIAL ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS.
BUSKEY, JOHN H.
THIS IS A RESEARCH PROPOSAL TO DEVELOP AND TEST A TYPOLOGY FOR CLASSIFYING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS CONDUCTED BY UNIVERSITY RESIDENTIAL ADULT CENTERS. THIS TYPOLOGY WILL BE INDUCTIVELY DEVELOPED, BASED ON EDUCATIONAL DISTINCTIONS LOGICALLY FORMULATED, DESCRIPTIVE, AND SET AT A LEVEL OF GENERALITY WHERE LOSS BY FRAGMENTATION WILL NOT BE TOO GREAT. IN A PILOT STUDY 16 RESIDENTIAL PROGRAMS CONDUCTED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO CENTER FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION WERE INDUCTIVELY ANALYZED, AND PROGRAM ELEMENTS IDENTIFIED. ORGANIZING PRINCIPLES WERE ABSTRACTED FROM THE ELEMENTS. ABOUT 265 OTHER CHICAGO CENTER PROGRAMS WILL BE CLASSIFIED TO REFINE AND COMPLETE THE TYPOLOGY WHICH WILL THEN BE FIELD-TESTED FOR COMMUNICABILITY, COMPREHENSIVENESS, USEFULNESS, ACCEPTANCE, AND CONSISTENCY. ABOUT 25 PROGRAM DIRECTORS AND COORDINATORS FROM SIX OTHER UNIVERSITY RESIDENTIAL CENTERS WILL USE THE TYPOLOGY TO CLASSIFY 375 PROGRAMS. DIRECTORS, COORDINATORS AND PROFESSORS OF ADULT EDUCATION WILL BE INTERVIEWED TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE CRITERIA ARE MET. THE PROPOSAL INCLUDES 25 REFERENCES. (LY)
