REPORT ON RESEARCH PROJECT CONCERNING "FACULTY ATTITUDES TOWARD THE DIVISION OF CONTINUING EDUCATION AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON," EUGENE. PAPER PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL SEMINAR ON ADULT EDUCATION RESEARCH (CHICAGO, FEB 11-13, 1968).
DAHLE, THOMAS L.
A STUDY WAS UNDERTAKEN AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON TO DETERMINE FACULTY ATTITUDES TOWARD THE DIVISION OF CONTINUING EDUCATION AND ITS ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING SUCH CONSIDERATIONS AS THE QUALITY OF INSTRUCTION IN THE DIVISION'S CREDIT COURSES, THE RIGOR OF GRADING, AND THE QUALITY OF THE STUDENT IT SERVES. FACULTY MEMBERS WERE ALSO QUERIED AS TO THEIR VIEW OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE DIVISION OF CONTINUING EDUCATION AND THE PRIMARY FUNCTION OF A UNIVERSITY, AND DATA WERE OBTAINED ON AGE, SEX, ACADEMIC DISCIPLINE, YEARS OF COLLEGE TEACHING, ACADEMIC RANK, AND MAJOR OCCUPATION (TEACHER, RESEARCHER, OR ADMINISTRATOR). USABLE QUESTIONNAIRES WERE RETURNED BY 130 RESPONDENTS. FAVORABLE ATTITUDES CORRELATED SIGNIFICANTLY WITH SEX (WOMEN), DISCIPLINE (PROFESSIONAL SCHOOLS), AGE (OLDER FACULTY), AND RANK (ASSOCIATE PROFESSORS), BUT NOT WITH THE OTHER VARIABLES. THERE WAS A SLIGHT TENDENCY, APPARENTLY ARISING FROM INSUFFICIENT INFORMATION, TO QUESTION THE QUALITY OF INSTRUCTION IN THE DIVISION OF CONTINUING EDUCATION. A NEED FOR FURTHER RESEARCH AND IMPROVED PUBLIC RELATIONS IS SEEN. (LY)
