A Study of the Competencies Unique to the Educators of Adults in the Vocational, Technical and Adult Education System. Final Report.
McClellan, Virginia B.
Competencies of an effective adult educator were identified by surveying a sample of administrators, coordinators, and instructors in the Wisconsin vocational, technical, and adult education system and a sample of adult educators at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. The tabulated results are reviewed in tables with the median and interquartile range given for the two groups of respondents. Results are presented by the adult educator competency areas of program planning, instruction, relationship with adult learner, relationship with peers and community, program coordinating, and evaluation. Also presented are results of a comparison of this study with a pre-existing one in adult educator competency identification done by the University of Northern Iowa. A model of an effective adult educator appears in narrative and graphic form. One-half of the report consists of appendixes which contain cover and followup letters, survey instruments, a list of adult educator competencies identified by Malcolm S. Knowles, cover letter and sample instrument used in the University of Northern Iowa Survey, and the questionnaire used at the Illinois Vocational Teachers Education Competencies Conference. (NJ)
