1979 Directory of Resources for the Education of Adults. Information Series No. 174.
Robbins, J. Nevin, Ed.
This directory addresses the needs of individuals and organizations for resources to improve their contribution to adult education and training. It is comprised of twenty-two chapters in four parts. The two chapters in Part 1, "Introduction," provide background information on the directory and adult education. The ten chapters in Part 2, "Guide to Resources," present resource ideas, suggestions, and references. Chapters 3-8 deal with common processing in educational programs: program management, funding, instruction/learning, materials selection, professional development, and problem solving. Chapters 9-12 focus upon special learner populations: handicapped individuals, non-English speaking learners, older learners, and self-planning learners. Each of the ten chapters in Part 3,"Human, Organizational, and Material Resources," identifies diverse resources and presents information about the various resource persons, organizations, or materials and describes how the reader may gain access to those resources. Resources include advisory councils, associations, educational programs for adult educators, governmental organizations information/resource centers, research/development centers, special purpose organizations, publishers, periodicals, and selected bibliographies. The two indexes in Part 4 identify the resource persons, organizations, and topics presented throughout the directory. The subject index classifies resources by chapter, section, and subsection headings; the general index lists resources and headings alphabetically by name. (CSS)
