An In-Service Curriculum Package for the Training of Teachers of Adult Students. Final Report and Recommendations.
Safman, Phyllis C.; Crocker, M. Judith
A project was conducted to develop a curriculum package for use in providing inservice training to adult educators. The content of the package was determined by information gathered from a statewide survey of adult education directors in Utah, a review of adult development and learning literature, and discussions with leaders and researchers in the field of adult education. The package was pilot tested with 21 teachers from public, vocational, and continuing education. The pilot test indicated that, besides being used in a workshop format, the package could be used successfully in other settings as well. This project report contains the curriculum package, which includes units on adult development and learning, counseling and career development, teaching techniques, and issues in adult education as well as a copy of the survey instrument used to gather information pertaining to the needs of adult educators in Utah for inservice training.
