The Ohio Case: Building Business, Education, and Government Alliances to Strengthen Adult Learning Opportunities.
Ohio Board of Regents, Columbus.
Activities undertaken in Ohio to plan and implement continued education and training of adults and to promote economic revitalization of the state are described. The activities represent Ohio's participation in the Education Commission of the States' Lifelong Learning Project. State-level planning for adult continuing education is discussed in regard to demographic, political, and educational factors. The following lifelong learning opportunities for adults in Ohio are also examined: adult basic education, high school equivalency certification, adult vocational education, degree programs, noncredit programs, and other adult learning opportunities (e.g, employer-sponsored training, courses offered by professional societies). Four experimental projects developed by the Ohio Board of Regents are also briefly described that have helped to link the areas of research and technology transfer. Attention is also directed to: regional linkage conferences; a survey of employers and colleges offering noncredit continuing education activities; a continuing education newsletter focusing on linkages between groups; the Ohio Board of Regents' Liaison Linkage Project; regional collaborative structures; the Ohio Resource Network; and policy implications for the future.
