Some Unfinished Business in Continuing Education. "From the Dean's Desk."
Winters, Clifford L., Jr.
Continuing education programs are criticized for their lack of creative program planning, inadequate staffing, insufficient funding, and weak professional organizations. It is suggested that graduate programs in continuing education need to appeal to and develop professionals who are applied social scientists, have a working knowledge of educational tools, and have extensive experience with adults, in order to upgrade faculty for development of creative programs. Funds need to be sought to finance research on community educational needs, scholarships, and educational expansion and replacement. Strengthening and unifying professional organizations can provide an effective tool for solving such problems. Continuing higher education has good administrators, budget management, and organization of professional literature, from which to draw strength for necessary improvements. (pt)
