Continuing Education of the Professions: Issues, Ethics, and Conflicts.
Frandson, Phillip E.
This paper addresses the issues concerning the moral and ethical picture of responsibility and control of relicensure in the professions. The author examines the historical framework of professionalism, outlines the philosphical, legal, and ethical issues, and stresses the need for accountability and continuing education. While the professional associations should set the standards for continuing education, it is recommended that the universities be responsible for planning and developing continuing education programs. The author advocates a structural arrangement within the institution whereby responsibility is shared by the professional school and the continuing education/extension division. Finally, the paper discusses the advantages of this dual-responsibility approach in continuing education of the professions. (SJL)
