Workshops on Communication Networks That Promote Opportunities in Postsecondary Education for the Handicapped.
Cutcher, Bertha N., Ed.; Shworles, Thomas R., Ed.
The book contains the major addresses, workshop findings, and materials from a 2 day workshop on communication networks designed to promote opportunities for the handicapped in higher education. The book is arranged in sections following the format of the conference program, with each segment prefaced by a brief introduction indicating the content of the session and identifying the speakers. Abstracts of each major address are included as well as the full, edited text of the speeches. A final section in which individual workshop leaders reported their group's findings is summarized and synthesized into a conclusions and recommendations section. An evaluation section follows in which responses to a postconference questionnaire surveying delegates' information seeking needs and behavior are tabulated and analyzed. A separate section of the book lists and annotates some communications vehicles that participants considered useful sources of information. Also provided are responses of a preconference questionnaire which elicited identification of organizations focusing on concerns of the handicapped in a postsecondary training setting. Workshops cover the following areas (names of panelists in parentheses): tactics for problem solving (J. Moffat); communication resources (R. Cheever, R. Mahler, and H. Roth); inservice education (G. Graham, and D. Kauppi); and organizations (D. Swift, T. O'Rourke, E. Lozano, Jr., and M. Redden). (SBH)
