Shaw, Marilyn B., Ed.; Stubblefield, Harold W., Ed.
These proceedings contain the presentations made at a conference held to disseminate results of teacher training and special demonstration projects (funded by the Adult Education Act, Title IV, Section 309) which had recently been conducted in Virginia and other middle eastern and southeastern States. Also included in the proceedings are papers by two conference consultants, Harold Beder and John Niemi, who spoke on the difficulties inherent in dissemination and suggested strategies for more effective diffusion and adoption of innovations. The rest of the papers are grouped under the following topics: (1) Student development in adult basic education (ABE), including recruitment and retention, teaching strategies, lifestyle assessment, and evaluations (nine papers); (2) teacher competencies: inservice needs and problems (one paper); and (3) special programs including inservice education, ABE in correctional institutions, and community education (three papers). Information on the conference, including lists of staff, guest speakers, project presenters, and participants, is also included. (LMS)
