Le Diplome d'Universite Face aux Activities de Formation Continue: Analyse Sommaire de la Documentation Actuelle. (The University Graduate with Respect to Continuing Education Programs: Summary Analysis of Current Documentation).
The document reviews the literature pertaining to university graduates and professional continuing education and discusses principal administrative problems in the organization of continuing education programs. Chapter 1 examines the university graduate's need for continuing education, new conceptions of continuing education for the university graduate, and the attitudes of and motivations for university graduates vis-a-vis professional continuing education. There is a brief mention of continuing education in areas not related to the university graduate's education or profession. Chapter 2 discusses the agents and their role in continuing education and the need for coordination among these institutions, groups, and persons. Agents described are: the university, professional associations, government, employers, and industry and commerce. Chapter 3 focuses on the elaboration and administration of activities in professional continuing education through the identification of needs, the establishment of objectives and content, resource persons, choice of method, financial policy, and evaluation. Chapter 4 overviews problems relating to the organization of continuing education. The three most important measures for ameliorating organizational problems involve focusing on: the attitudes and motivations of individuals, coordinating the agents, and educational activities. Recommendations concentrate on other organizational aspects. The conclusion summarizes the text. A 67-item bibliography and appendixes are included. (JB)
