A Study of the Education Professions Development Act Training Programs for Higher Education Personnel, Volume I: Introduction and Summary of Findings. Final Report.
Anderson, R.; Salter, W.
Volume I of a four-volume study of the Education Professions Development Act (EPDA) training programs for higher education personnel presents introductory information and study findings. The first section addresses the three major concerns of the study: (1) What new professional training does American higher education need? (2) How do current EPDA V-E programs address these needs? and (3) What new developments seem likely to affect training needs in the future? The second section presents a legislative review of EPDA. Emphasis is placed on the legislative environment and objectives, manpower supply and demand, information, and legislative development. Section 3 indicates the three-faceted approach used in the study: a survey to assess training needs; a profiling system to collect and organize EPDA V-E program information on a regular basis; and a set of case studies of institutions representing important new trends in higher education. The fourth section presents a summary of findings. A 20-item bibliography is included. Related documents are HE 004 330, HE 004 331, and HE 004 332. (MJM)
