This report attempts to present a state-of-the-art report on action-learning (experiential learning), share ideas and information about what is going on in the field, and promote the wider adoption of action-learning. First, the need for action-learning programs is explored. Included are discussions of one position of the Federal Government on action-learning and career education, some Congressional concerns on action-learning, and the needs and uses of action-learning programs. Following these discussions, the institutional views of action-learning are explored. Discussions in this section center on action-learning as it relates to unions, State education agencies, secondary school accreditation, college entrance examination boards, and public agencies. Next, the document examines problems in the research and evaluation of action-learning programs, and four action-learning project examples are provided. The presentation concludes with a set of findings and recommendations on action-learning and a list of the conference participants. (Author/DN)
