RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM DATA--A STATISTICAL DESCRIPTION. CONTINUING EDUCATION REPORT FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO.
DEVLIN, LAURENCE E.; LITCHFIELD, ANN
IN THE PROGRAM RESEARCH PROJECT OF RESIDENTIAL ADULT EDUCATION CENTERS, DATA WERE COLLECTED BY QUESTIONNAIRE ON 25 ASPECTS OF 1,196 STAFF-INFLUENCED ACTIVITIES CONDUCTED IN 1966 AT RESIDENTIAL CENTERS OF TEN UNIVERSITIES. DATA WERE GROUPED BY NUMBER, LENGTH, AND DISTRIBUTION OF ACTIVITIES, NATURE OF THE ACTIVITY, ORIGIN AND SPONSORSHIP, ROLE OF THE CENTER STAFF, SOURCES OF INSTRUCTION, AND CHARACTERISTICS OF PARTICIPANTS. MOST ACTIVITIES WERE FIRST-TIME CONFERENCES WITH 50 TO 75 PARTICIPANTS, LASTING FOR THREE DAYS OR LESS. PROGRAM CONTENT WAS USUALLY PROFESSIONAL OR TECHNICAL, AT A LEVEL COMPARABLE TO GRADUATE STUDY, DESIGNED TO IMPROVE THE OCCUPATIONAL COMPETENCE OF PARTICIPANTS. THE LARGEST NUMBER OF ACTIVITIES WAS ORIGINATED BY AN ORGANIZATION OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY. THE MAJOR CONTRIBUTION OF THE CENTER STAFF WAS GUIDING THE ACTIVITY FROM PLANNING TO FOLLOWUP. OF THE FOUR SOURCES OF INSTRUCTION IDENTIFIED, INSTRUCTION BY THE FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY AT WHICH THE RESIDENTIAL CENTER IS LOCATED WAS THE MOST COMMON. PARTICIPANTS WERE PRIMARILY MALE, BETWEEN THE AGES OF 36-55, COLLEGE GRADUATES, FROM THE PROFESSIONAL OR TECHNICAL OCCUPATIONAL GROUP. (THE HISTORY OF THE PROJECT AND LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY ARE INCLUDED.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO, 5835 KIMBARK AVENUE, CHICAGO, ILL. 60637. (AJ)
