How Continuing Education Programmers Perceive Their Job Roles.
Rowe, George P., Ed.
To determine the attitudes of University of Missouri Continuing Education Programmers toward their job roles, questionnaires were mailed to all 24 programmers (10 women and 14 men). A 100% rate of return was obtained. A summary of the 17 findings is provided. Problems elicited from the questionnaires concern: (1) the difficulty in securing resource people, primarily instructors for educational programs; (2) the lack of communication with various academic departments; (3) the additional job responsibilities of the programmers in the "traditional" Extension areas; (4) the need for additional training in program planning, identifying resources, and communications with staff and university personnel; (5) the need for sufficient secretarial help; and (6) an overlap of job responsibilities among the programmers. Recommendations are offered in each of these problem areas. A general recommendation made is that a follow-up study be conducted in a year or two to serve as a comparison with the present study. (DB)
