Report: Third Regional Seminar, Southeastern Region Adult Basic Education Staff Development Project (New Orleans, May 5-10, 1970).
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The regional seminars of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) are designed to provide inservice training and planning experiences to foster the professional growth of state department of education, university, and local AE/ABE staff members. The third regional seminar was aimed at developing ongoing, self-supporting training programs within each state and concentrated on assisting key persons in state education departments and universities to develop college and university capabilities for preservice and inservice training of staff in Adult and Adult Basic Education. The seminar was opened with a general session, in which introductory remarks were presented. Following these remarks, the first assignment was presented to the participants, who separated into professional groups. After the group discussion sessions, feedback sessions were held to examine some of the common expectations of all participants. Inputs from the group discussions served as springboards for the state planning meetings. The states conducted their planning exercise, keeping in mind the following question: Taking the current state of staff development in your state, what specific next step shall be formulated or enacted for professional staff development in the coming year? At the closing session, changes that would be effected in adult education were discussed and evaluatory remarks made. (Author/CK)
