The Educational Sciences: Their Relevance to Adult Training in Canada. Innovations in Training Series Number 1.
Jimenez, Andres E., Comp.
The articles in the collection discuss the theory and practice of seven Educational Sciences. These are the basic elements of a conceptual framework for the education profession proposed by Joseph E. Hill in the belief that if educators are to establish mutual understandings of educational problems and phenomena, a unifying conceptual framework and language are imperative. According to A. E. Jimenez, compiler of the collection, Hill urges educators to become skilled in using information pertaining to (1) symbols and meanings, (2) perceptions, (3) inferential patterns, (4) the biochemistry of memory, (5) individual cognitive styles, (6) counseling, (7) administrative and teaching styles of college personnel, and (8) systematic analysis and decision making. In addition to Jimenez' introductory article and three articles authored or co-authored by Dr. Hill (one in English, one in French, and one in both a French and an English version), the collection includes 11 articles by other authors: (1) six articles in English only treating cognitive style mapping and individualized or personalized education; (2) two articles in French only on these subjects; and (3) three articles in both French and English versions, one describing Project ARISTOTLE. There is an emphasis on occupational education throughout the collection. (AJ)
