Continuing Education in Canadian Universities.
Cannell, R. L.
Different aspects of the development of continuing education in Canadian universities and institutions were studied by the British author through visits to Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, and Banff. Short visits were also made to Massachusetts, Washington, Oregon, and California. Comparisons between Canadian and British approaches to continuing professional education were made on the basis of the visits regarding: their activities and development; the organization of the professional staff and activities in the centers for continuing education; university activities in the professional areas of engineering and management; the training of adult educators; and the financing of continuing education activities. Opportunities for part-time degree study in Canada and the United States through the extended day and trimester systems offer new ideas for continuing education in British universities. Appended materials (30 pages) contain the author's notes on the continuing education activities at the universities visited in Canada and in the United States on an individual basis. (EC)
