CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS, CONFERENCE AND INSTITUTE DIVISION, NATIONAL UNIVERSITY EXTENSION ASSOCIATION (PURDUE UNIVERSITY, APRIL 23-27, 1965).
National Univ. Extension Association, Minneapolis, Minn.
IN APRIL 1965 AT THE PRECONFERENCE WORKSHOP OF THE C AND I (CONFERENCES AND INSTITUTES) DIVISION OF THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITY EXTENSION ASSOCIATION, WILBERT MCKEACHIE DEALT WITH CONFEREES' QUESTIONS RELATED TO LEARNING PROBLEMS TO BE CONSIDERED IN PLANNING CONFERENCES AND INSTITUTES. MCKEACHIE BROUGHT OUT THREE MAJOR PRINCIPLES--(1) LEARNING IS ALWAYS GOING ON, SO THE PROBLEM IS TO PLAN WHAT KINDS OF LEARNING WILL OCCUR, (2) DIFFERENT KINDS OF LEARNING DO NOT ALWAYS GO TOGETHER, SO CHOICES MUST BE WEIGHED AGAINST WHAT IS FORECLOSED, AND (3) FEEDBACK FACILITATES LEARNING. AT THE MAIN CONFERENCE, FRANK WOERDEHOFF DISCUSSED PRINCIPLES TO OBSERVE IN DEVISING A TRAINING PROGRAM AND SUGGESTED HOW TO BUILD A CURRICULUM FOR TRAINING NEW C AND I PERSONNEL. THE PRINCIPLES WERE (1) TO MAKE TRAINING OBJECTIVES MEET THE CRITERIA OF SOCIAL ADEQUACY, NEEDS, ADULT EDUCATIONAL IDEAS, AND BEHAVIORISTIC INTERPRETATION, (2) SELECT CONTENT SIGNIFICANT TO THE FIELD OF THE CONFERENCE AND INTERESTING AND CONTRIBUTORY TO GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT, AND (3) LOGICALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY ORDER CONTENT IN TERMS OF SCOPE AND SEQUENCE. HIS RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDED THE ORGANIZATIONS OF A COMMITTEE FOR PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS AND TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT OF A NATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM. C AND I DIVISION ROSTER IS APPENDED. (RT)
