Continuing Education in Action; Residential Centers for Lifelong Learning.
Alford, Harold J.
This book deals with university continuing education centers emphasizing those at ten pioneering institutions (Michigan State University, Columbia, Oxford, California Polytechnic State College, Notre Dame, the University of Chicago, and the Universities of Georgia, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and New Hampshire) that came into being through the financial assistance of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. These centers contain auditoriums, conference rooms, and sleeping and dining accommodations; they are each part of a university whose total academic resources are available to the adult learner. The role and background of continuing education centers, origins of the centers described here, the design and financing of facilities, program planning and presentation (including special degree programs), the use of research and staff training to improve continuing education, approaches to program administration and finance, and anticipated trends in residential continuing education are discussed and documented.
