Postdoctoral Fellowship in Educational Research. Final Report.
Doty, Barbara A.
The author describes her activities and accomplishments during a fellowship tenure and provides an assessment of the effect of the scholarship policy on her achievements. She concentrated on adult basic education (ABE) programs, literature, and research. Activities included participation in a workshop in adult basic education, and in meetings of the Illinois Adult Education Roundtable; and interviewing educators in adult basic education. She compiled and read about 35 titles which covered the field of ABE. Participation in research involved the designing of two pilot studies, one dealing with the evaluation of mental abilities in semi-illiterate adults; the other with the use of operant conditioning and money reinforcements in teaching adults. The research fellowship was invaluable to her, and the lack of restrictions placed upon activities allowed her to sample a variety of useful experiences. (PT)
