Report; Professional Development Committee, National Association for Public School Adult Education.
National Association for Public School Adult Education, Washington, DC.
From national, regional, and state associations, colleges, and universities the National Association for Public School Adult Education (NAPSAE) Professional Development Committee requested policy statements relevant to professional development activities and procedures used to improve adult educators. A limited number of what might be defined as policy statements relating to professional improvement were returned; associations tended to provide generalized statements. The sequential procedures provided in graduate programs by the insitutions of higher education which sponsored either master's and/or doctoral programs for adult and continuing education were the most definitive. From study and collation of the information, the committee produced two interrelated policy statements and fourteen points of procedure for adoption by the Board of NAPSAE. It recommended professional development through collegiate study, and affirmed its dedication to the professionalization of the field. Procedures include the development of: a nationwide program of fellowships, loans, and internships; a public information system; citizenship leadership teams. (NL)
