The Women's Leadership Project: A One-Year Training Project in Adult Education Administration. Final Report.
Boston Univ., MA. School of Education.
The Women's Leadership Project represents an initial effort to combat discrimination against women in adult education, with special emphasis on adult basic education. Overall goals involved leadership development, impact, and support to: (1) recruit and prepare 10 qualified women adult educators for leadership positions in adult education, (2) develop a resource center of materials relevant to the leadership status of women in education and disseminate information broadly, and (3) develop an internal/external support system for project participants. The highly individualized program was conceived as strongly field based with emphasis on the relation between theory and practice. Project staff included one full-time and three part-time faculty representing educational management, curriculum, and adult education. Program features included: a special preseminar and seminar, supervised management internship in adult education at the local or State level, university course work, and special community impact activities. Specific listings of internships, courses, conferences/meetings/workshops attended, special impact projects, and resource center offerings are included as well as self-rating forms and progress charts. Appendixes contain: a schematic representation of the project, recommended readings, proseminar schedule, educational leadership appraisal, a workshop description, job referral and placement resources, and resource center readings.
