Evaluation du seminaire d'ete, ICD, 1969 (Evaluation of the Summer Seminar, ICD, 1969).
Paquet, Pierre; Belanger, Paul
This study described and evaluated a 1969 community development training seminar in the province of Quebec held by the Institute Cooperatif Desjardin, including workshops on such topics as community development ("animation"), economic development, and program planning and administration. Concentrating on the nature and causes of the impact exerted by the community development intervention process, the study evaluated the seminar primarily through interviews with participants and assessments by other community developers and social scientists. The seminar itself was aimed at an exchange of experiences among adult educators in a setting that stressed joint activity. Outcomes corresponding to program objectives and participant expectations, those corresponding to the latter only (sensitivity to group process), and marginal results (mainly personal contacts and trial and error learning), were examined, as well as efforts at cooperation among workshops and orientation to audiovisual technology. Comparisons of participant expectations and satisfaction, on one hand, with the attainment of basic program objectives, on the other, seemed to show relatively little connection between the two. Various reasons and explanations were suggested. (LY)
