The Role of the Professional Association in Continuing Professional Education.
Luke, Robert A.
A discussion of those programs and activities of institutions of higher education, of employers and of professional associations which involve some sort of joint action or a collaborative effort on the part of any combination of two or more of any of the three is presented. The focus of this discussion is on those training programs which require released time, depend upon cooperative decision making patterns, and which are clearly aimed at systematic career development. The three major forces--the university, the professional association and the employer--are frequently completely separate and unrelated to each other. Brief description is given of the Adult Basic Education Professional Staff Development Program in the southeastern states and administered by the Southern Regional Education Board. There were two main elements of the program plan: (a) a major role for higher education institutions and (b) a leadership role within each state for the state director of each state and for members of his staff. It was found that the process of sharing resources, of planning together, and of learning from each other can only take place within a deliberately developed intellectual climate which supports fact-finding, systematic problem solving, and rational self-evaluation.
