Essays on the Future of Continuing Education Worldwide.
Ziegler, Warren L., Ed.
Topics chosen for these eight seminar papers divide basically into three categories: discussions on processes and methods for planning for the future of adult education; attempts to project into the future such worldwide problems as urbanism, conflict, the population explosion, and specific adult education trends; and discussion of the current scene to determine how adult education is shaping its own future. Papers by Ziegler and Weaver approach the future from theoretical and policy planning perspectives. Ely describes the availability and application of new developments in instructional communications and educational technology. Wilcox describes a range of dynamic new adult educational experiences in urban ghettos among the poor, the disenfranchised, and blacks. Birenbaum focuses on the relationship between continuing education and the quality of urban life. A paper by the staff of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research suggests the rightful role of adult education in coping with conflicts among and between nations. Papers by Blakely and Deleon deal with adult education trends in general, together with larger problems whose solution will not emerge from adult education alone. An epilogue gives excerpts from seminar discussions. (LY)
