Midwest Energy Education Consortium: Final Report.
Minnesota Environmental Sciences Foundation, Inc., Minneapolis.
The U.S. Department of Energy sponsored an energy education communications network from August, 1980 through November 1981 for educators and information specialists who deal with K-12 students, vocational training, adult and postsecondary education, and the general public in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. As a final report, this document summarizes the basic workings of the Midwest Energy Education Consortium model and includes recommendations, evaluation, and future direction. The emphasis of the program was on sharing information about energy education materials, workshops, programs, resources, and funding opportunities. Channels used were periodic and special mailings, telephone calls, and quarterly meetings. Members concluded that the Consortium was a cost-effective, valuable service, should be continued and expanded to include other states, and should have more private sector involvement and information exchange.
