Resource Development and Utilization in Adult Basic Education. Final Report.
Aker, George F., Ed.; Schroeder, Wayne L., Ed.
This Institute was based upon the premise that existing efforts to eliminate illiteracy must be dramatically increased across the country and this increase in effort and activity could be substantially achieved with existing resources through the creative and dynamic efforts of the State Directors of Adult Education. Consequently, the Institute was designed to provide as many human and material resources as possible for use by the State Directors in analyzing the magnitude of their tasks, their individual and collective roles, and in developing imaginative "plans of action" to maximize the effective use of resources in adult basic education. The participants in the Institute were involved in a variety of pre-conference planning activities prior to their involvement in a human relations-problem solving 2-week residential workshop. The major objectives of the workshop were to enhance the creative capabilities of the participants, to perfect their communication, perceptual and problem solving skills, and to put into action innovative ideas to help overcome certain problems which inhibit the impact and effectiveness of adult basic education.
