Review and Synthesis of Research Concerning Adult Vocational and Technical Education.
Adams, Dewey Allen
In response to the increasing need for information relating to adult vocational and technical education, this state-of-the-art paper presents a review, summarization, analysis, and synthesis of significant literature in the area. Special attention is given the role of the public secondary schools and community colleges in contributing to adult vocational and technical education. Specific sections of the report deal with advisory committees and the research concerning the facilitation of adult learning. A summary of research and developmental activities identifies the significant trends, points up imperative needs, and recommends important research priorities. The four problem areas in the greatest need of research are identified as: (1) program evaluation and accountability, (2) organization, administration, and supervision, (3) integration of general and vocational education, and (4) strategies for working with minority groups.
