Higher Education Administrators' Institute for Teacher Training in Adult Basic Education. First Year Report, 1970-1971.
Utah Univ., Salt Lake City. Graduate School of Education.
The Higher Education Administrators' Institute for Teacher Training in Adult Basic Education was established to provide leaders, deans, and department chairmen of teacher-training departments in colleges and universities in the U.S. with leadership knowledge and skills necessary to organize and conduct programs for training teachers in Adult Basic Education. The program was implemented in three phases during FY71: (1) Planning and Commitment, (2) an Adult Education Workshop, and (3) Consultation. Of the 25 institutions funded by the Institute, 23 were conducting follow-up activities related to the Institute's goals. At 7 institutions, 19 new courses were added, and 5 new degree programs were started. Five other institutions not funded by the Institute have entered into consortiums with members of this project. It is estimated that more than 600 people have attended workshops and meetings as a result of the Institute's activities. It is concluded that the response to the Institute suggests that a serious need for such a program does exist and that the Institutes activities have increased the awareness of that need.
