The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) and "You Can": Two Innovative Ideas for Continuing Educators.
Dudgeon, Paul J.
This article deals with two ideas that are of special interest to adult continuing educators. The first innovation is the continuing education unit (CEU), which is a means for providing a uniform measure of recognition to the adult non-credit student. A CEU represents ten contact hours of participation in a continuing education non-credit learning experience under responsible sponsorship, and qualified instruction. Current views on the uses of the CEU, as well as its strengths and weaknesses, are documented. The "You Can" Program is an innovative approach to developing a national image or identity for adult continuing education. Some of the expected results of the "You Can" concept are an elimination of the fragmentation of effort that often occurs in individual community programs, and a sense of cooperation among all continuing education groups.
