Nicholls State University: Adult Basic Education Institute for Teachers, Administrators, and Paraprofessionals of Rural ABE Programs: Final Report.
Nicholls State Univ., Thibodaux, LA. Graduate School.
The report is a final evaluation of a three-week Adult Basic Education (ABE) institute emphasizing rural ABE, and of the research phase of the project conducted July 1971--May 1972. Throughout the institute, participants were requested to compile a list of areas of adult education research based on the presentations and discussions during the program. During the last week, participants were requested to submit research topics for approval. The report includes a general overview; information on participants and officials, academic credit, and facilities; and a six-page summary of daily events. Three types of evaluation of the institute conclude the first section of the document. The report of the second phase, the field followup research activities and three regional workshops devoted to them, is primarily comprised of eight monographs produced by staff associates from the research submitted by participants (on such topics as the recruitment and retention of adult students, teacher-training needs, and characteristics of adult learners and instructional implications), and of abstracts of the research reports submitted by the participants. A one-page narrative report for the research activities precedes the materials; related documents and recommendations to the U. S. Office of Education are appended. (AJ)
