Educational Brokering; A New Service for Adult Learners.
Heffernan, James M.; And Others
The emerging educational brokering service, functioning between adult learners and educational resources, aims to help them find their way into formal postsecondary education via counseling, advocacy, assessment and referral services. This monograph presents nine major issues concerning the educational brokering service: (1) definition and introduction, (2) services, (3) clients, (4) staff, (5) organization structure, (6) relationship with other institutions, (7) reaching-out strategies, (8) sources of funding, and (9) evaluation of the service. Following the introductory material, each chapter outlines current problems, reflections and projected strategies pertaining to the discussed issue. A directory of brokering agencies and suggestions for using this monograph, along with an inventory of developmental issues for further discussion, are appended. (SC)
