Personal and Professional Values in Adult Education and Community Work. The Frank Milligan Memorial Lecture 1971.
Personal and professional values in adult education and community work are discussed from the standpoint of the growth of professional employment and training for it. Adult education is interpreted as comprising all the deliberate and conscious efforts people make to enlarge and interpret their experience of life. All effective adult education is seen as contributing to community work, and all community work is considered a form of education. A short biographical sketch is given of Frank Milligan, and a summary of his values are quoted from Milligan's Wincham Hall report for 1935-36. Professional organizations that are contributing to the up-grading of the quality of service to the community by their members, and are concerned with protecting the material interests of their members, are briefly described. Measures being used to train professionals in the Community Association Field are said to be inadequate to meet the need. It is stated that professional training must center on the needs and situations of the people who are to be served and not merely on the machinery and instrumentalities used to serve them. (DB)
