GUIDE LINES FOR TRAINING DEVELOPMENT ADMINISTRATORS.
STONE, DONALD C.
DEVELOPMENT ADMINISTRATION, CONCERNED WITH SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CHANGE, HAS A DIFFERENT FOCUS AND COVERS DIFFERENT SUBJECTS FROM THOSE IN TRADITIONAL COURSES IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION, POLITICAL SCIENCE, ECONOMICS, OR LAW. IN DESIGNING A CURRICULUM, TRAINING CENTERS SHOULD STUDY THE TASKS AND PROCESSES OF DEVELOPMENT, ADMINISTRATIVE OBSTACLES, AND TRAINING ACTIVITIES IN OTHER COUNTRIES. IN THE UNITED STATES, THERE ARE FEW COURSES EMBODYING THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS RELATED TO DEVELOPMENT ADMINISTRATION. IN EUROPE THE STUDY OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN DOMINATED BY FACULTIES OF LAW AND THEREFORE CONCERN WITH MAINTAINING THE STATUS QUO. MOST UNIVERSITIES IN OTHER AREAS HAVE COPIED THESE PROTOTYPES BUT IN LATIN AMERICA INNOVATIVE DEVELOPMENTS IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION EDUCATION ARE ESPECIALLY NOTABLE. TRADITIONAL UNIVERSITY ORGANIZATION IS A MAJOR OBSTACLE TO ESTABLISHING PROGRAMS OF STATURE AND MANY SCHOOLS HAVE HAD TO BE SET UP OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY FRAMEWORK. EVERY UNIVERSITY AND TRAINING CENTER MUST DETERMINE THE FIELDS AND CATEGORIES OF PERSONNEL ON WHICH TO CONCENTRATE, PROJECT OVER THE YEARS NEEDS FOR PERSONNEL AND PROGRAMS, VARY THE CURRICULUM ACCORDING TO THE PERSONNEL BEING TRAINED, AND PROVIDE A VARIETY OF PROGRAMS--INTERNATIONAL, NATIONAL, AND LOCAL.
