The National Seminar on Curriculum Development for Extension Workers as Seen by Participants.
Alexander, Frank D.
The National Seminar on Curriculum Development for Extension Workers held its first session in December 1963, and since that time there have been 9 additional meetings. This report undertakes to present an evaluation of the 10 meetings of the Seminar. A survey questionnaire was prepared and sent to 21 current or past participants and returns were received from 16 or 76%. A summary of the results includes: (1) a total of 62 publications, reports, or papers were contributed to the seminar; (2) 10 of the respondents reported 13 publications to be classified under the category, relating to derivation of concepts from anthropology and sociology, and 6 respondents reported 10 publications classified as relating to derivations of concepts from psychology and educational psychology; (3) 13 respondents made 20 mentions of the use of ideas derived from the Seminar for planning courses; (4) 6 respondents made 10 mentions of the use of ideas derived from the Seminar in advising and thesis counseling of graduate students; (5) of the participants made 10 mentions of the use of ideas derived from the Seminar in planning curriculum; (6) 7 of the participants made 9 mentions of efforts to diffuse ideas derived from the Seminar; and (7) 8 of the participants made 12 mentions of individual gains derived from the Seminar. The evidence from this evaluation provides strong support for the investment of time, effort, and money by the participants in the Seminar exercise. (HS)
