Commission of Professors of Adult Education.
The annual meeting of the Commission of the Professors of Adult Education included reports from several committees; discussion of such topics as teacher training for adult education, encouraging participation in the Commission, graduate programs; and a business meeting. Fifty-nine professors of adult or extension education from 35 institutions were present. A report was given on the study of where adult education courses and programs are developing and on the Professional Development Committee of the National Association for Public School Adult Education. A proposal was outlined for teacher training in adult education. It was decided not to revise the book, "Adult Education--Outlines of an Emerging Field of University Study," but to re-do parts of it in pamphlet form. Domain teams were formed to evaluate, summarize, and disseminate research related to adult education. A resolution was adopted to be sent to Secretary Richardson protesting the reported test of political party affiliation being applied to the selection of expert personnel for the committees of the White House Conference on the Aging in 1971. Paul V. Delker of the Office of Education spoke on "1971 Adult Education Emphases and Concerns of the U.S. Office of Education." (EB)
