I Want Many Lodestars. Notes and Essays on Education for Adults, 21.
Schwertman, John B.
Essays call for the development of a theory of university adult education and for the development of new and expanded research into basic problems of curriculum planning, learning theory, and evaluation of the results of liberal adult education programs. The urban university is asked to examine its purposes in adult education, which is often its largest educational activity. Questions are raised and answers suggested about the differences between teaching the adult and teaching the schoolboy. What does it mean to our teaching that the adult has more experience, different experience, and experience differently organized? Will the goals, patterns, and procedures of education that succeed with the undergraduate succeed equally well with adults? How much general education, and how much specialized education, should an undergraduate have? and in what order? If we assume that graduates will continue to learn throughout their lives, what education is most appropriate for them in school and after school? (eb)
