Developing and Implementing Full-Time Adult Education Programs.
Dauzat, Sam V.
A training institute was conducted to provide participants with knowledge and experience which would enable them to demonstrate competence in designing and implementing full-time adult education programs in Louisiana. Fifty participants were selected from parishes throughout Louisiana interested in initiating or improving full-time adult education programs. (Forty-two adult educators actually participated in all three phases of the institute.) The project consisted of three major phases, including instruction, model plan design, and implementation. The first phase consisted of a one-week intensive insructional program conducted to provide basic cognitive skills prerequisite to the design and implementation of full-time adult education programs. Following instruction, participants engaged in the application of knowledge and skills gained by designing plans for developing or improving full-time adult education programs for their local parishes. The implementation phase was provided as a follow-up to ofer support services where possible and to facilitate the implementation of selected model plans of full-time programs. An evaluation of the institute indicated that the participants felt they had invested time in an educationally relevant and profitable program which prepared them to better perform the tasks of developing and administering educationally sound center-based adult education programs.
