A Workshop on Continuing Education for the Professional.
Ellis, Robert H.; And Others
An examination of the Hartford Graduate Center was the focus of a workshop designed to: (1) study its goals for continuing education programs for working professionals, (2) analyze a proposed approach for accomplishing these goals, and (3) assess how the knowledge and resources of continuing education can be most effectively used. Participants considered areas of human conditions, learning environments, and technical resources as they influence the ongoing graduate-level education of professionals. The report is divided into two sections: workshop discussions and excerpts from group discussions, and observations and suggestions for action. The workshop discussions are arranged according to eight interrelated topics: the role of the Hartford Graduate Center, determining what should be learned, professional career planning, adult learners, managers of learning resources, media and delivery systems, top management and continuing education, and measuring and evaluating learning. Each discussion is comprised of a summary statement and selected statements from the recorded comments of the participants. A synthesis of findings and conclusions about the center, the center's program, the faculty, the learner, and cooperation with industry are provided in the latter section. A list of participants, statement of goals of the center, and a workshop prospectus and agenda are appended. (Author/EC)
