Universities Council for Adult Education; Report on the Year 1967-1968.
At the Annual Conference of Universities Council for Adult Education, reports centered around individual and regional accomplishments in the field as well as on general trends--exploration and innovation, the use of radio and television, the construction of buildings, and the role of the full time tutor. Heriot-Watt University, a new member, reported 1,100 enrollments in ten non residential, and nine residential, courses. In Bristol, a class in archaeology included a week-end course on "Archaeological Air Photography," in which members flew, photographed, and interpreted findings. Leeds, Keele, and Sheffield reported courses for students working for London external degrees; at Sheffield these included 17 students from industrial day release courses. Other exploratory courses included Liverpool's "family summer school" and Leicester's "Making a Teaching Film." The overall expansion of adult programs is continuing at a rate of over 6% yearly; tutorials increased from 694 to 710. Greater effectiveness was found in using full time, rather than part time tutors, who often model evening classes after daytime ones. (Included are statistical tables showing the number of courses, meetings, enrollment, and subjects offered.) (nl)
