EXCELLENCE IN CONTINUING EDUCATION, PROCEEDINGS OF THE ANNUAL JUNIOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATIVE TEAMS INSTITUTE (6TH, UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, GAINESVILLE, AUGUST 7-9, 1966).
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee.; Florida Univ., Gainesville.
THE GROWING INTEREST IN CONTINUING EDUCATION ON THE LOCAL, STATE, AND NATIONAL LEVELS APPEARS RELATED TO (1) THE IMPROVING EDUCATIONAL LEVEL OF THE GENERAL POPULATION, (2) THE CHANGING AND INCREASINGLY COMPLEX WORLD, (3) INCREASING LEISURE, AND (4) THE RISING STANDARD OF LIVING. RESEARCH INDICATES THAT (1) FEW COLLEGES EMPLOY ADULT EDUCATION ADMINISTRATORS AND THAT SUCH POSITIONS ARE RELATIVELY NEW, (2) JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE LIMITED BY CERTAIN FORCES WHICH PREVENT THE FULL REALIZATION OF THEIR ADULT EDUCATION POTENTIAL, AND (3) FACTORS WHICH FOSTER ADULT EDUCATION ACTIVITY INCLUDE PUBLIC CONTROL, SEPARATE ORGANIZATION, STATEMENTS OF GUIDING PRINCIPLES, CLEARLY IDENTIFIED STAFF AND FUNCTIONS, DOCUMENTARY RECOGNITION OF THE ADULT EDUCATION FUNCTION, BUDGETING FLEXIBILITY, ADMINISTRATIVE AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT, AND CAREER IDENTIFICATION OF THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR. WEAKNESSES IN ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS INCLUDE (1) ADMINISTRATIVE CONFLICT, (2) UNWILLINGNESS OF ADMINISTRATORS TO BE INNOVATIVE, (3) EMPHASIS ON CLASSES FOR CREDIT, (4) RESTRICTION OF ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS TO EVENING HOURS, (5) LACK OF FINANCING, AND (6) LACK OF SPECIALLY DESIGNED ADEQUATE STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES. FIVE MAJOR SPEECHES AND THREE PANEL REPORTS ARE PRESENTED. (WO)
