A Desirable Outdoor Education Program for Adult Education Centers.
Ferris, David Louis
An attempt was made in this investigation (1) to survey the status of existing outdoor education programs for adults and (2) to work with a jury of experts to report elements of an effective outdoor education program for adults in the future. Participants included (1) the directors of 76 adult education centers in cities of 25,000 to 100,000 and (2) a group of 12 nationally known authorities in outdoor education. Questionnaires were used for obtaining data. Concluded were that (1) there is a growing interest in outdoor education for adults, (2) the purposes, objectives, and outcomes selected by all respondents provide an adequate and desirable guide for establishing an outdoor education program for adults, and (3) adult education directors appear to be sincerely interested in improving and extending the educational opportunities available in their communities through providing outdoor education courses.
