Demonstration, Developmental, and Research Project for Programs, Materials, Facilities and Educational Technology for Undereducated Adults. Final Report.
Morehead State Univ., KY.
This final report summarizes the activities of the Appalachian Adult Basic Education Demonstration Center (AABEDC) at Morehead State University in Kentucky for the grant period from July 1, 1969 to June 30, 1970. The AABEDC operates in the Appalachian counties of thirteen states from New York to Mississippi. Its target audience is the rural isolated mountain people. AABEDC activities fall into four areas: change agent, training, research, and demonstration. Change agent activities included local, state, and regional advisory boards, seven conferences, inter-agency cooperation, 29 monographs and brochures and dissemination of innovation. Training activities included a graduate program in adult and continuing education, three Adult Basic Education (ABE) training institutes, and staff training in field units. Research activities included seven studies. Demonstration activities included 14 projects or modules in 11 states. The evaluations of the AABEDC Regional Board of Directors and the Michigan Institutional Survey and Consulting Service are reported. It is recommended that the model of a research, demonstration, and training center serving a distinct subpopulation of ABE students and staff in a several state area is an efficient and effective use of monies available to adult education.
