CEU [Continuing Education Unit].
Adult Basic Education Region V Staff Development Bulletin, v2 n3 p1,5 Apr 74
The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a means of recording and accounting non-credit programs and activities which are professional in nature. Seven criteria have been established to assure the professionalism and quality of instruction. The criteria concern the need, objectives, and rationale of the activity; the course planning and organization, the course sponsorship; the provision for participant registration; and the establishment of evaluation procedures and CEU criteria prior to the beginning of the activity. Five general uses of the CEU are recognized as appropriate; it can also serve several significant roles within the educational institution in relation to other types of credits, educational budgeting, and additional areas. Specific academic uses for the CEU may be developed, but none of the uses should be applied in retrospect for evaluation or measurement. Utilization of the CEU criteria holds several advantages for the student, business, industry, professional organizations, and educational institutions. (Author/AG)
