Communication Concepts for Adult Educators.
Pletsch, Douglas H.
The methodology used in the study of communication concepts by the adult educator in agriculture is explained, in order to develop more effective training programs and materials. Four stages were delineated to clarify procedural aspects of the study: (1) determination of anticipated behavioral requirements for future competence in communication of social change, through assessment of technical, social, and economic trends in society; (2) identification of relevant communication concepts by reviewing literature and submitting them to a screening process; (3) definition and description of most important concepts; (4) suggestion of educational objectives useful in increasing competency in communication to implement educational change. Twelve of the more important intellectual behavior requirements for adult agricultural educators, and 31 concept groupings are listed, including an example of the concept "persuasion." General objectives to provide a basis for more specific teaching objectives and learning experiences are listed and an illustration given. (pt)
