A Workshop to Increase and Improve University Teacher Training in Adult Basic Education. Final Report: Volume 1 and Abstract.
Chicago Univ., IL. Dept. of Education.
The workshop for persons engaged in the training of Adult Basic Education (ABE) teachers had two major objectives: (1) that a clear analysis of the state of the art in ABE teacher training be formulated and made available to the field, and (2) that faculty members who need this information be brought up to date, thereby increasing the effectiveness of existing programs and encouraging the development of new ones. Six program objectives were formulated and served as a core for developing an evaluative questionnaire which was sent to all participants six months following the workshop. The questionnaires were returned and 64 percent of the responses are discussed in relation to the program objectives. Two central questions guided the assessment of the impact of the workshop on participants and the field: (1) how well did the workshop design facilitate the attainment of the goals established by the planning committee, and (2) how well did the substantive content serve to insure the achievements of the workshop objectives. These questions were examined in relation to 10 aspects of the workshop: recruitment, participant expectations, resource personnel, work groups, plenary sessions, group reports, cognitive achievement, field trips, the black caucus, postworkshop evaluations, and graduate students as project staff members.
