Educational and Occupational Counseling and Information Systems for Adults. Conference Report.
Along with the expansion of adult education has come an increased awareness of the needs of adults for information on career development and on the role education can play in that development, and for assistance in locating the specific courses or curricula which meet their needs. This report is directed to policy-makers in Federal and state agencies who are interested in or who manage counseling and information services for adults. It reviews and examines "first generation" activities (i.e., the Learning Exchange, CATALYST) and identifies fruitful directions for next generation efforts. Three major topics are addressed: (1) the groups who are served by the projects and those who are not; (2) the kinds and sources of data used and the mechanisms and techniques for presenting and delivering information and counseling to the adult client; and (3) the financial viability of these services beyond initial agency funding. Finally, issues concerning the evaluation of these services are discussed. Recommendations for actions by Federal agencies are given and focus on: (1) the need for further research and development, (2) the directions which new project funding should take, and (3) the need for actions by Federal agencies beyond continuing financial support.
