Project ACT VIII Wrap-Up Report.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Dept. of Education.
Project ACT (Adult Competency Training) was a United States Office of Education staff development project in Region 8 from 1972 to 1975, implementing a self-generating and self-supporting staff system to help adult educators become better prepared to serve their clients. The project served Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming through a policy board, with two representatives from each State; strategy boards, within each State; and a central administrative staff. Major components were developed and are described: Individualized Training Programs (ITP's), developing adult educator competency in specific areas through self-directed study aided by literary and audiovisual resource materials from ACT; Regional Resource Teams (RRT's), involving various adult educators from the six States as consultants and trainers for other adult educators in the region; learning modules and project documentaries, providing audiovisual aids, exercises, and bibliographies as resource materials; and Project Act Resource Information System (PARIS), employing computer-based data management techniques to make literary and audiovisual materials, and information regarding training sites and resources available to adult educators. It is hoped that funding will be provided to continue the major project components. (LH)
