Synthesis of the Keystone Workshop for State Licensing and Approving Officials.
The week-long conference was productive of both ideas and enthusiasm. Important accomplishments of the week include an annotated directory of conferees; five background papers -- evaluative criteria, consumer information, grievance mechanisms, vocabulary/terminology, and site visitation; a simulation game of a state-agency visit to a nontraditional campus; and steps taken to strengthen the design of the state oversight study. The fifteen observations made by this participant are characterized by a concern that solutions to problems in the field be formed carefully and cooperatively, with concern for their broad and long-term effects. Recommendations by conference members include ideas for future conferences (the inclusion of professionals in other, related areas; expanded use of simulation techniques; more training in evaluation, legal problems, and terminology), and greater sharing of information and ideas across state lines and within state systems. A conference schedule and participant list are included. (MSE)
