Self Concept in Adult Participation; Conference Report and Bibliography.
Syracuse Univ., NY. ERIC Clearinghouse on Adult Education.
Three adult education conference papers, together with abstracts, are presented on adult education participation and self-concept. Propositions regarding behavior and motivation are discussed in the context of a theory of self-concept. Curiosity, enjoyment of learning activities, and pleasure in acquiring and/or possessing knowledge are among the reasons stressed in another paper for involving oneself in learning. Also considered are the ways in which conflicting psychological needs, role transition, and the attitude or sense of powerlessness affect adult learning. The document includes publications of the ERIC Clearinghouse on Adult Education and additional references, notes on availability, and the ERIC Document Reproduction Service order form. (ly)
