Design for a Performance Based Adult Education Community Coordinating Agency.
Stambler, Moses
A plan is described for a project to establish an adult education coordinating and change agency in the New Haven, Connecticut area to coordinate activities of existing organizations; provide a research staff to establish a computerized data base; disseminate information and provide technological services to local agencies; set up a communications network; and provide a staff development program and workshops. The proposal includes a specific list of reasons for establishing the agency in New Haven, such as deficiencies in programs, lack of access to information, and fragmentation of services. A section outlines suggestions for administration, management, needs assessment, and an overall approach to implementation. The roles of research teams and computer technology, multi-media technology, guidance, and subject matter consultant services are discussed and an organizational chart follows. In step-by-step format, objectives are listed for each phase of development, such as the organization of the data service unit; establishing relationships; data gathering and dissemination; simulations, workshops and conferences; and continued functioning of the agency after nine months, each with suggested strategies for securing measurable output. A chart shows a schedule of phase implementation over a 12-month period, and a budget breakdown is included. (MDW)
