ABE Administrators' Institute, Region VIII. (University of Wyoming, Laramie, June 16-27, 1969).
Wyoming Univ., Laramie. Dept. of Adult Education and Instructional Services.
The 1969 Adult Basic Education (ABE) Institute at the University of Wyoming aimed to provide ABE administrators with skills needed in consultative capacities with teachers, special interest and community groups, state department officials, regional specialists, and boards of education -- as well as specific knowledge about ABE. Through case studies, selected by a leadership resource team, participants were provided an opportunity to acquire a fuller understanding of the philosophy and rationale for ABE, concepts of administration, psychology of adult learning, sociological implications of the educationally disadvantaged, and proven methods and techniques of evaluation. The document contains summaries and reactions written by participants; a results-of-participant-attitude scale; and a comparative analysis of attitudes expressed by participants attending the institutes during the first and second weeks.
