"Trainers of Trainers' Workshops" in Adult Basic Education and Subsequent Grant Activity. Final Report.
Maryland Univ., College Park. Center of Adult Education.
Sponsored by the Ford Foundation, workshops for trainers of trainers of teachers in adult basic education were held in the summer of 1965 at the Universities of New Mexico, Maryland, and Washington. Administrators, supervisors, university faculty, and teachers (155 in all) were trained; each workshop had its own approach and developed its own evaluation. The University of Maryland was granted supplemental funds from the Ford Foundation to perform a nationwide evaluation of participants several months after the workshops and an evaluation of the trainers and teachers trained by them. In addition, a "Guide for Teacher-Trainers in Adult Basic Education" was published by the National Association for Public School Adult Education (NAPSAE) in early 1966; it is a blending of the materials generated by all three workshops. Unexpended funds under the original workshop project have been transferred to NAPSAE to service an office of coordinator of adult basic education training activities. (eb)
