BOYD, ROBERT D.
AT A CONFERENCE OF ADULT EDUCATORS DESIGNED TO BRING INTO FOCUS NEW PERSPECTIVES OF THE ROLES OF ADULT EDUCATION, PAPERS WERE PRESENTED ON THE CHANGING CONCEPTS OF PRODUCTIVE LIVING AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CONCERN FOR PRODUCTIVE LIVING AND ADULT EDUCATION.

A SCHEMATIC MODEL WAS DEVELOPED OF THE INDIVIDUAL IN SOCIETY TO EXPLAIN THE EVOLUTIONARY, FEEDBACK, AND SYNTHESIS MECHANISMS OF INDIVIDUALS DYNAMICALLY INTERACTING IN SOCIETY. A PAPER DISCUSSES THE PROBLEM OF LEISURE IN MODERN SOCIETY. OUTDATED AND UNREALISTIC CONCEPTS OF COMMUNITY LIFE WERE IDENTIFIED AS FRUSTRATING AND BLOCKING PROGRESS TOWARD MORE PRODUCTIVE LIVING. THE PAPERS CONCLUDED WITH A DISCUSSION OF THE CHANGING SEX ROLES IN THE AMERICAN FAMILY AS REFLECTED IN VARYING NORMS FOR FAMILY LIVING, AND THE ROLE AND FUNCTION OF THE ADULT EDUCATOR IN RELATION TO THESE CHANGING CONCEPTS OF SEX ROLE DIFFERENTIATION.
