Report: Joint Conference: Second Annual Region IV Conference on Adult Education and Second Regional Institute Southeastern Region Adult Basic Education Staff Development Project. (Daytona Beach, Florida, February 14-18, 1970).
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
Two simultaneous conferences on Adult Education and Adult Basic Education were held because it was considered that interaction between the two conference groups would be mutually beneficial. The defined goal of this joint institute was: the identification of problems, strategies, and priorities as they relate to an on-going plan for staff development at all levels in each state engaged in Adult and Adult Basic Education. There were four distinct phases to the process of interaction at the institute. These were: (1) meetings of the university professors and graduate students, (2) a regional overview and state meetings, (3) two institute-wide work sessions, and (4) a regional planning exercise in state plan development. The most relevant outcomes of the institute were: (1) an identification and ranking of common needs in the participating states in the area of staff development, (2) the commitment of the various participating groups to interact with others involved in Adult and Adult Basic Education programs to meet these needs, and (3) state plans for staff development, based on the needs, priorities, and strategies revealed in the work-group sessions. The group generally evaluated the conference as helpful to a moderate degree. (Author/CK)
