The Nature of Higher Education's Response to ABE Staff Development in the Southeast, 1969-1974: An Examination of Off-Campus Course Activity.
Kozoll, Charles E.
In an effort to maintain the quality of adult basic education (ABE) instructional personnel, prevent a reduction of emphasis by higher education on responding primarily to ABE interest and needs, and determine directions of the off-campus programs, a questionnaire was sent to 45 higher education institutions in the Southeast which provided graduate level courses for ABE personnel during the 1969-74 period. From the 33 who responded, findings indicated that (1) the majority of the institutions were distinctly oriented toward the master's degree level, (2) the majority of faculty members were located in distinct adult education departments, (3) the majority reported two or less full-time adult education faculty members, and (4) there were five courses that were relatively standard off-campus offerings in the region--introduction to adult education, curriculum development, administration, adult learning and psychology, and methods and materials. The report includes detailed descriptions of study results along with a discussion of efforts which would aid ABE program development and student enrollment. (WL)
