The Tutor. [and] A Typology of Adult Educators.
Scheffknecht, J. J.
The two-part report surveys tutor training in several European countries, particularly England and France, and presents a typology of adult educators. The first part deals with introductory considerations concerning tutor training in three sections: present state of tutor training in Europe, which discusses types of tutor training and general trends and the main features of tutor training; aims and methods of tutor training, which discusses the main goals and the elements of a methodology of tutor training; and an example of the organization of material into training units, which presents a 16-unit adult education tutor training scheme organized around the training situation. The second part of the document analyzes the constituents of a system for the continuing education of adults. Part 2 covers in turn: trends and perspectives in continuing education for adults, the education and teaching function, and animation and intervention function, the information function, the research and tutor training function, the administration function, the organization function, and the management function.
