The Literature in Adult Education: A Review Report.
Grabowski, Stanley M.
The paper briefly outlines the current status of adult education literature, shows some trends, indicates what is needed, and offers some suggestions on how to meet these needs. The current literature in the field falls into three general categories: published books and pamphlets, fugitive documents, and periodicals. Based on a study of documents acquired by the ERIC Clearinghouse in Adult Education in 1970, tables show the breakdown of documents by intended audience, by subjects, by types of documents, types of articles in adult education for 25 years, and queries received by ERIC/AE in 1972. The final section of the paper discusses the current needs in the field of adult education. Major efforts are needed in the areas of research and dissemination of materials. Recommendations for the Commission of Professors of Adult Education include: (1) more topical bibliographies, (2) interpretive literature reviews, and (3) curriculum materials reviews. (Author/MW)
