Curricular-Instructional Materials and Related Media for the Disadvantaged Adult in the 1970's.
Montclair State Coll., Upper Montclair, NJ.
One object of this conference was to develop a practical strategy for designing a more cooperative communications structure among adult educators, publishers, and media specialists, thus assuring continuity for effective activity in developing and testing instructional materials for various categories of educationally disadvantaged adults. Another was to identify priorities as guideposts toward which educators and others can direct their efforts more efficiently and effectively during the 1970's. General sessions and separate papers discussed such concerns as job training and hiring, the state of the art of adult basic education, remedial education (including Project 100,000 for military personnel), audiovisual technology, and evaluation criteria for adult basic education activities. Recommendations were offered on a professional communications system, Federal funding for publishers of instructional materials, and several other matters. (The document includes 29 references, communications and curriculum design models, photos, participant roster, and resource publications on educational media.) (LY)
