RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM DATA--IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE. CONTINUING EDUCATION REPORT FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO.
DELVIN, LAURENCE E.; LITCHFIELD, ANN
A PROFILE OF A TYPICAL STAFF-INFLUENCED RESIDENTIAL ACTIVITY IS CONSTRUCTED FROM DATA REPORTED IN THE PREVIOUS ISSUE OF CONTINUING EDUCATION REPORT, AND IMPLICATIONS ARE DISCUSSED. PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS INDEED RESIDENTIAL AND OF CONTINUING EDUCATION, PRIMARILY TO IMPROVE OCCUPATIONAL AND PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCE. WHILE MOST ACTIVITIES ORIGINATE OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY, CENTER PERSONNEL ASSUME MAJOR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR GUIDANCE. THE UNIVERSITY'S SPECIALIZED RESOURCES, PARTICULARLY FACULTY, ARE UTILIZED. THE TREND HAS BEEN TOWARD LARGE GROUPS IN RESIDENCE. PROGRAMS, WHICH ARE ONE-TIME ACTIVITIES FOR PARTICIPANTS, ARE NOW BEING REPEATED AT RESIDENTIAL CENTERS. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT SKILLFUL PLANNING OF LARGE CONFERENCE GROUPS WILL BE NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE THE INTIMACY BETWEEN STUDENT AND TEACHER THAT IS DESIRED OF THE RESIDENTIAL EXPERIENCE. CENTER PERSONNEL NEED TO INCLUDE EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMS IN DEVELOPING CONTINUOUS AND INTEGRATED PROGRAMS, WITH EVALUATION. THERE IS ALSO A NEED TO INCLUDE CULTURAL EDUCATION TO ACHIEVE A MORE BALANCED PROGRAM AND PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY FOR PERSONAL GROWTH. PARTICIPANT COUNSELING SHOULD BE INCLUDED. A LONGITUDINAL STUDY WILL BE POSSIBLE AFTER PROGRAM DATA IS COLLECTED IN 1967. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO, 5835 KIMBARK AVENUE, CHICAGO, ILL. 60637. (PT)
