Seminar on Comparative Studies in Adult Education (Ontario Institute For Studies in Education, April 10, 1968).
Ontario Inst. for Studies in Education, Toronto.
Parts of the four papers presented at the Seminar on Comparative Studies in Adult Education are included in this document, as well as summary notes on the meeting. The opening paper reviewed past comparative efforts and set forth the author's conception of priorities for future comparative studies. Another paper stressed the dialectic between practical and theoretical considerations and urged systematic quantification of data. The third speaker, unlike the second, looked to the behavioral sciences rather than simply to the field of education for theories and methodology (including systems analysis) for cross-cultural comparative research. In the last paper, the lack of international studies of participation, clear-cut institutional classifications, or even reliable and valid statistical data was discussed, together with student course evaluations relevant to graduate study in comparative adult education. The document includes a selected list of topics for cross-cultural and cross-national comparisons. (ly)
