New Institutional Arrangements and Organizational Patterns for Continuing Education: Appendix. Final Report.
Blakely, Robert J.; Lappin, Ivan M.
This report is based on a study of new institutional arrangements and organizational patterns for continuing education in the United States during 1969. Two related parts give findings of questionnaire surveys and interviews in ten middle-sized New York State urban areas, and findings of a national study based on interviews, visits, and current literature. The national study indicates a general trend in American society toward applying knowledge to solve social problems and in social action. Specific movements in the use of continuing education by noneducational institutions are reported, along with its progress to a more central role in educational institutions. Developments in national continuing education associations are sketched, including both obstacles to cooperation and trends toward common interests. An approach to common ground is suggested. Ten steps to improve the field of continuing education are recommended. It is concluded that continuing education needs a strategy for making a cumulative impact. Appendixes describe local survey methods and details of the results.
