Maryland Community Service/Continuing Education Project (CS/CE Project): Final Project Report.
Maryland Univ., College Park. Conferences and Institutes Div.
The Maryland Community Service and Continuing Education (CS/CE) project for strengthening CS/CE programs aimed: (1) to provide a continuing process for inservice training and development of personnel engaged in CS/CE; (2) to establish and maintain mechanisms for communication and cooperation among those involved in Maryland's CS/CE programs; and (3) to improve the CS/CE enterprise's ability to respond relevantly to and provide leadership for the changing educational needs of Maryland citizens. The project's constituency was professional staff within Maryland higher education institutions and other organizations who were primarily involved with the development, administration, or management of CS/CE programs. Specific 1976 training activities (summarized) were a series of workshops which addressed program planning and development, management, and program promotion, the needs which had ranked highest in a 1975 assessment. A newsletter and a series of dialogs (briefly described) answered communication needs. Participant feedback indicated reasonable success and validated the needs assessment findings. Included in the 30-page report are lists of participating faculty and project materials, and demographic data. Appended materials are comprised of: (1) the needs assessment instrument and survey results; (2) program planning committee rosters; (3) copies of the project newsletter; (4) workshop evaluation summaries; and (5) a newsletter critique.
