University of Delaware Commission on Lifelong Learning: Phase 1 Report.
Delaware Univ., Newark. Commission on Lifelong Learning.
Tasks of the University of Delaware Commission on Lifelong Learning are discussed. The first phase of the Commission's work was designed to establish a reliable base of relevant, up-to-date information on the status of lifelong learning in Delaware and the Nation. Five Commission tasks of phase one are: defining "lifelong learning" and determining the university's present program in this area; determining the lifelong learning needs of the state and region; determining the extent to which lifelong learning needs are unmet by existing programs; performing research on student characteristics and educational needs; and determining the feasibility of meeting unmet needs. Ten recommendations are offered, including the following: (1) the Commission should review university statements of mission, philosophy, and objectives to determine their relevancy or consistency with the concept of lifelong learning; (2) faculty should have the basic responsibility for the development of lifelong learning opportunities; (3) lifelong learning should be included in the ongoing planning of each department and/or college; and (4) more communication and collaboration should occur between lifelong learning programming staff and the Office of the Provost in planning and developing programs.
