The Adult Basic Education Teacher Workshop was a two-week program designed to increase the competencies and skills of people involved in teaching the undereducated adult. Biographical information on the 30 participants is broken down according to sex, age, level of completed education, geographical residence, area of professional experience, and teacher work experience. The program utilized the assumptions and processes of Andragogy. Participants assisted in determining program content and objectives through diagnosis of their own needs. The daily schedule of the workshop is provided. Participants were assigned two major tasks: (1) to learn to handle all 7 pieces of audiovisual equipment; and (2) to develop a plan that they could use in their local teaching area. Summaries of lectures by resource persons are provided. The program was evaluated through: (1) continuous assessment of learning; (2) analysis of participants' interactions with others through pre-testing and post-testing; (3) evaluation forms completed by participants on the last day; and (4) observations made by the workshop director. Successful and unsuccessful aspects of the workshop are discussed, with suggestions for improvements. All relevant forms, questionnaires, and other informative material used in the workshop are presented in the body of the report or in Appendixes A-F. (KM)
