A Study of the Continuing Education Needs and Interests of Managers and Professional People in South-Central Oregon.
Easton, Edison E.
Questionnaires were sent rendomly to 980 individuals to determine educational needs and interests of supervisors, managers, administrators, and professional people in south-central Oregon. The object was to determine the desired subject matter, time, place, approach, and instructor, and the influence of age, education, location, size of organization, place of work, and occupation. Answers, based on 171 usable questionnaires, cannot be assumed representative of all groups under study, but some patterns emerged. Subject areas of greatest interest were human relations, management and organization, psychology and motivation, writing, supervision and leadership, speech, data processing, accounting, investments, personnel and manpower, labor relations. Winter was the preferred time for programs and 3/4 were willing to drive only 1-20 miles round trip once a week for 8-10 weeks. The seminar discussion approach was preferred. Those with over two years' college education favored faculty members over instructors from business or the professions. Those from larger organizations favored two or three day conferences and expected time off with pay and their tuition to be paid. (A sample questionnaire and many tables are included.) (jf)
