The Institute of University Extension Administration (March 9-12, 1968).
Ontario Inst. for Studies in Education, Toronto. Dept. of Adult Education.; Canadian Association of Departments of Extension and Summer Schools, Ottawa (Ontario).
The focus of the eight day Institute for Directors of Extension sponsored by the Canadian Association of Departments of Evening and Summer Schools and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education was on administration theory--the examination of adult education problems and their effect on the university. Participants attempted to develop general concepts from particular problems through the use of case studies of the Universities of Toronto and Manitoba, and specific solutions from general models by simulation task studies and problem solving theory. Among conclusions were: goal setting and review are the only way to manage an institution in order to bring about improvement in individuals and administrative performance; increases in student population, the explosion of knowledge, and problems of increasing complexity of an urbanizing society are converging upon the university; and individualized instruction can be attained through a systematic approach in providing continuous and professional emphasis on what and how to teach, and how to evaluate.
