The Role of Colleges of Advanced Education in Australian Adult Education. Monograph, No. 1.
Crowley, D.W., Ed.
Existing official and unofficial colleges of advanced education (CAE) including numerous technical, paramedical, and agricultural colleges in Victoria, a few institutions in New South Wales, and other schools and institutes in Queensland, South Australia, and Western Australia, are described; and plans for future colleges or the upgrading of existing institutions, are noted. Next, in a background paper and commentary, are somewhat divergent opinions on such questions as the balance between vocational and general education in CAEs and overlapping between CAEs and university extension. Evaluating both the background paper and the commentary, Section three stresses the view that a broad, extensive program at the subuniversity academic level has an important place in Australian adult education and that CAEs would be well fitted to the task. Detailed comments from six administrators and other educators also appear. (ly)
