"Trainers of Trainers' Workshops" in Adult Basic Education and Subsequent Grant Activity.
Oliver, Leonard P.
Workshops were conducted in 1965 at the Universities of New Mexico, Maryland, and Washington for 150 educators responsible for preparing trainers of adult basic education teachers. Immediate program evaluation and followup evaluation were done; the University of Maryland followup surveyed not only workshop participants, but also trainers and teachers taught by them. The workshops led to the publication (1966) of a guide for teacher trainers and to the creation (1967) of a national clearinghouse on public school adult education. Areas of need were highlighted in information and coordination, teacher training, curriculum development, funding, publicity, student evaluation, and counseling. Recommendations called for a national service bureau in adult basic education, regional demonstration centers, a national teacher training institute, demonstration projects in industry, and a demonstration project to train dropouts and unemployed youth as teacher aides.
