Higher Adult Education in the United States; The Current Picture, Trends and Issues.
Knowles, Malcolm S.
This survey provides a guide for discussion and inquiry for administrators and faculty members of higher educational institutions, people in government who work in adult education, and citizens who are concerned with this area of educational service. Essentially, it is an analysis of the literature of higher adult education from 1960 through 1968, as documented by the ERIC clearinghouse on adult education at Syracuse University. It starts with an attempt to place the field of adult education in perspective. Chapter 2 presents a synopsis of the historical roots and a broad picture of the current situation. Chapter 3 identifies some of the external and internal forces that seem to be pressing for change. Chapter 4 summarizes the trends discerned in the literature; and Chapter 5 isolates the national, state, and institutional issues that are revealed as concerns of adult educators in institutions of higher education. A selected bibliography, with abstracts, is included. (se)
