Proceedings of the First National Workshop on Energy Efficiency Education Through Technology Transfer.
Cohen, Karen C., Ed.
This publication contains the proceedings from a workshop held in Washington, D.C. in December, 1977. The purpose of the conference was to examine project PROCEED (Program for Continuing Engineering Education) as an innovative approach to technology transfer in energy efficiency education and the potential relationships of the project with the Department of Energy. The titles of presentations to the workshop are: (1) The National Energy Problem and the Federal Response; (2) Energy Conservation Education: Major Considerations; (3) False Images In Engineering Education; (4) Effective Methods of Delivering Appropriate Information: A Status Report; (5) Project PROCEED: Developmental History; (6) Project PROCEED: Its Learning Design; and (7) Project PROCEED: How It Works. The actual workshop involved three working groups. The three topics from which the groups developed recommendations and conclusions are: (1) Content and Problems; (2) Delivery Modes; and (3) Management and Viability. A summary of the recommendations and conclusions as well as a list of participants is included in this publication. (MR)
