Lifelong Learning: The Adult Years, v2 n5 January 1979
More than 1,500 educators at the National Adult Education Conference probed issues ranging from competency-based teaching, through the lifelong growth of adult educators themselves, to national concerns which gave the conference its "5E" theme: employment, ethics, education, environment, and energy. Presentations given at the conference focused on (1) who is responsible for adult basic education; (2) a national policy for adult education; (3) the coming decade of adult education; (4) opportunities for adult educators; (5) competency-based adult education; (6) industrial training opportunities; (7) recruitment and development of volunteers; (8) learning resources; (9) adult education in international perspective, adult education in the armed services, and working with the aging; (10) equality for women; and (11) education for global citizenship and bioethics.
