Continuing Education for Business. Monograph 125.
Swatt, Kenneth A.
Focusing on adult business education in the public evening school, the monograph first presents a brief history of the educational form and its philosophical foundations for progress and then lists programs of adult business curriculums, both preparatory and supplementary. The broad preparatory programs offer courses to educate adults for entry into the labor force in a new or former occupation. Courses in the preparatory curriculum cover accounting, shorthand, business data processing, business organization and management, office machines and procedures, system design and development, and typewriting. The supplementary programs, often of short or single courses, provide education for adults who have already entered the labor market and need education to update or upgrade their current employment skills. Planning and criteria for adult business education in several States are presented, along with short descriPtions of courses offered. Such courses are conducted by secondary schools, vocational-technical schools, and many postsecondary institutions. Complete vocational guidance services should be available for adults, such as testing and counseling, educational and occupational information, and placement and followup. The monograph also discusses methods of planning adult programs and the teaching methodology appropriate to adult learners. (MF)
