A Concept of Regional Adult Education (Quad Cities Concept).
Beveridge, A. Allan
A Quad Cities Centre has been proposed for regional adult education in the area of Galt, Guelph, Kitchener, and Waterloo in southwestern Ontario. Conestoga College of Applied Arts and Technology, the Universities of Guelph and Waterloo, and Waterloo Lutheran University would begin by appointing a steering committee for proposing an executive director and providing leadership, objectives, and a time schedule. They would next create an information and guidance section, then would invite colleges and other community organizations to cooperate with them in offering opportunities for liberal education, public affairs and community education, professional and vocational studies, recreational and nature education, and upgrading of secondary schooling. Information retrieval by telephone, a residential center, provincial coordination of administrative functions, varied audiovisual resources, and oncampus day and evening lecture classes would be among the features and services of the Centre. Despite unanswered questions and some expected resistance to such an integrated approach, the concept is feasible and should be attempted. (ly)
