Handbook of Adult Education.
Smith, Robert M., Ed.; And Others
The 1970 edition of this handbook is an attempt to reflect the totality of adult education -- its background, function, objectives, and roles -- as a discipline and in American society. It is divided into three parts. Part I discusses forms, functions, and the future of adult education -- social setting and international dimension for adult education, program development and evaluation, information resources and services, technology, research and theory, philosophical considerations, and adult educators. Part II contains papers on institutional forms and arrangements in adult education -- colleges and universities, public schools, libraries and museums, cooperative extension service, armed forces, labor unions, business and industry, health and welfare agencies, religious institutions. The third part outlines program areas -- curriculum and content, adult basic education, education for the family, social and public responsibilities, vocational and technical education, continuing and self fulfillment education. Three appendixes present a directory of participating organizations of the Committee of Adult Education Organizations, information sources in adult education, and the contents of past handbooks. (PT)
