Cyril O. Haule et la Formation Continue des Professionnels: Notes d'Entrevue et Morceaux Choisis. (Cyril O. Houle and Continuing Professional Education: Interview Notes and Selected Excerpts).
The document focuses on Dr. Cyril O. Houle, professor at the University of Chicago, who has concentrated on the development of continuing career education. The introduction presents biographical notes on Houle's career and a listing of his published works. The first section offers notes (in French) from an interview between Houle, called on as a resource person, and a committee from Laval University assigned to study the careers of graduates of the university and to formulate measures to aid graduates in adapting to changes in the career world. The interview carried three principal themes: the different attitudes and professionals regarding continuing education, the roles of various agents or institutions in continuing education, and ways in which the university can adequately respond to the needs of its graduates. The second section, in English, contains excerpts from four articles and conference papers in which Houle defines profession and discusses the four categories of professionals; the need for and nature of continuing career education; traditional and new concepts of continuing career education; and the role of the university, the group, the individual, the employing institution, and the professional association.
