The Recognition of Women's Experiential Learning in the United States.
This report is intended as a tool for colleges, universities, volunteer associations, businesses, and industries that wish to give women official recognition for experience acquired through nonpaid work. Chapter 1 examines experiential learning in the United States and how it is viewed for women. The second chapter is a selective bibliography from ERIC of 34 models, practices, and tools on women's experiential learning since the 1970s. References are presented in sequence, beginning with the oldest publication. Each reference is in the format used by the ERIC system for journal articles and documents that includes title, author, descriptors, and annotation or abstract. Chapter 3 offers a synthesis of 14 documents selected from chapter 2 to present a range of steps that should be followed when implementing an experiential learning program for women. The documents are presented in the form of a synthesis preceded by titles and authors' names. Tables are reproduced from the original documents. The documents are grouped by target populations: vocational educators and employers, vocational educators, employers, and the candidate. (YLB)
