Process Perspectives: Community Education As Process.
Warden, John W.; And Others
The purpose of this collection of papers is to define and explain the concept of process orientation, especially as applied to community education. The major presentation begins by tracing the central importance of process orientation through a review of literature within community education. Then a variety of different perspectives on process orientation from related fields and disciplines is explored. A typology of process perspectives based on different value frameworks is offered as a reference point. This includes process orientation as procedure, as problem-solving, as power, and as psychological and social development. Finally, at the end of the major presentation, community education and several developmental dimensions associated with a process orientation are discussed. The publication concludes with reaction papers by Susan J. Baillie, Jack D. Minzey, Everette E. Nance, Steve R. Parson, David A. Santellanes, and Terry A. Schwartz. (Author/JM)
