Perspectives on Investigating the Consequences of Experiential Education. Information Series 164.
Crowe, Michael R.; Beckman, Carol A.
This document contains the proceedings of a two-day symposium conducted to analyze four different perspectives (psychological, economic, anthropological, and sociological) on evaluating experiential education programs. The perspectives are represented in papers by Samuel H. Osipow, Psychology, Ohio State University; Nicholas M. Kiefer, Economics, University of Chicago; Sheila S. Walker, Anthropology, University of California; and Frank J. Weed and Charles E. Ramsey, Sociology, University of Texas. The keynote address, by Richard Graham of Youthwork, Inc., is followed by a section for each perspective. Each section begins with the major presentation and includes a summary of the commentary by participants on the advantages and limitations of the particular perspective in evaluating experiential education programs. Following the commentary is a summary of the perspective by an individual who represents that perspective and is an experiential education practitioner. The last section offers reflections on the symposium by Thomas R. Owens, Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory; and Dan Conrad, University of Minnesota. The symposium agenda, a list of participants, and biographical sketches of the authors are appended. (LMS)
