A Proposed Process for Determining Professional Behaviors Needed by Adult Education Administrators.
Veri, Clive C.
A review of investigations which have had as their purpose the identification of competencies needed by professional adult educators is presented. This document attempts to taxonomize in a single list the competencies which research has found, and then suggests a process whereby specific behavioral objectives can be structured which will enable learners to achieve these competencies. The following studies were reviewed: (1) The White Study, (2) The Chamberlain Study, (3) The Aker Study, (4) The Veri Study. Using data from these four studies, a total of 125 competencies were identified. An attempt to arrange the competencies into a taxonomy resulted in the following major headings: Personal Attributes, Societal Affairs, Adult Education, Adults, and Programing. A 10-step process for determining behavioral objectives is described. It is suggested that these objectives be used to design new learning experiences for learners. (CK)
