Higher Education Administrators' Institute for Teacher Training in Adult Basic Education Workshop.
Utah Univ., Salt Lake City. Graduate School of Education.
A workshop held December 7, 8, and 9, 1970, was the second phase of a three-part program which aims to organize and develop Adult Basic Education (ABE) teacher preparation programs in institutions of higher education. The goals of the workshop were to: (1) inform participants about the need for professional preparation in teaching Adult Basic Education; (2) inform participants about research relevant to organizing teacher education programs; (3) help participants develop in-service training plans that they could use at their respective institutions; (4) help participants develop measurement and evaluation skills with which they could judge their own Adult Basic Education programs; and (5) provide a place for participants to exchange ideas, opinions and findings, and to develop specific plans of action to initiate at their institutions. The 32 participants in the workshop were from 26 institutions from 20 states west of the Mississippi River. The four papers presented at the workshop were: "A Report on Reaching the Undereducated in Salt Lake City" by Suzanne Weiss, "Report of the Southern Regional Education Board Project in Adult Learning" by Charles E. Kozoll, "Theories of Adult Learning for Teachers of Adults" by Howard Y. McClusky, and "Developing a Theory of Adult Teaching" by Jack Mezirow. Material discussed in Question and Answer Sessions is also presented. (For related document, see AC 012 505.) (DB)
