How to Train Teachers to Train Adults.
Luke, Robert A.; Ulmer, Curtis, Ed.
The focus of this guide is on training those who are already teachers to work in the adult education field. Discussions are presented of the following points: Teachers Are Made--Not Born; What Is So Different about Teaching Adults; Setting the Goals for Teacher Training; Getting Underway with Planning; What Is a Training Design?; Where to Go from Here (The Learning Exercise, Demonstration Teaching, and Practice Teaching); The General Session; Learning Groups; The Steering Committee; Evaluation That Makes Sense; and Recruiting and Training Institute Personnel. It is concluded that the demonstrated potentiality of good training in adult teaching methods is so great that there is no reason why a carefully chosen teacher should not, if given the opportunity to learn and practice, measure up to the highest achievement levels.
