The Yale Conference on Learning (December 9-10, 1966).
Zigler, Edward F.; Abelson, Willa
A 1967 conference on the nonlearner focussed on an examination of broad, major issues in contemporary American education. Among the facets discussed at the conference and briefly summarized here are educational goals and social change, the responsibilities of the schools, and controversies about the educational strategies. Also noted is the polarity between the cognitive-intellectual and emotional-motivational emphases in viewpoints about the learning process. Other issues include the need for new types of teacher training, for ways of loosening the inflexibilities of school administrations and structure, and for expansion of relevant inservice education. The value of contributions of behavioral scientists was stressed. A number of general and specific recommendations were presented at the meeting. (NH)
