The Dissemination Process: Sharing Successes. Seventh Regional Seminar, Region IV Adult Basic Education Staff Development Project.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The 1974 seminar of the Region Four Adult Basic Education Staff Development Project had four purposes: (1) to make adult educators aware of new materials and techniques developed in the region; (2) to communicate the methods used to distribute these products; (3) to describe the systems used to relate human and institutional resources in a dissemination network, and (4) to work out specific steps for the project to take to make these systems permanent and stable. Each State (Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, South and North Carolina, Florida, Alabama, and Georgia) had the opportunity to make presentations relating to the first three purposes; highlights from these presentations are included. Business sessions covered topics such as: funding for the project, improving attitudes toward university adult education programs, methods for evaluating the seminar, and suggestions for future activities. A survey of participants' views on the seminar indicated that they felt the purposes of the seminar had been achieved and that the sessions were for the most part informative. Some specific suggestions for improving the conference are included. Appendixes list the State ABE directors and project planning committee, the project staff, and seminar participants. (Author/NH)
