Alternatives for the 80's. A Compendium of Lectures and Resource Documents from an Institute in Adult Education at the University of New Mexico.
Bowes, S. Gregory, Ed.
The papers in this compendium center on adult/community college education and the alternatives that will be presented to faculty, institutions, and communities during the 1980s. In "Working Effectively with Adults: What Research and Practice Tell Us," Mark Rossman discusses the adult learner's physiological changes, mental abilities, psychological factors affecting adult learning, and the adult orientation to learning. John Niemi gives examples of cultural differences, especially in relation to minority groups, and their implications for adult education, in "Cross-Cultural Considerations in Adult Education." The development of inservice teacher education to meet certification needs, professional growth needs, and leadership dimensions is the topic of Richard Rounds in "The Professional Development Plan (PDP) at the Albuquerque Technical-Vocational Institute." In "The Reentry Woman in Higher Education," Dolores Hentschel reviews the history of this movement, shares research-based generalizations about the women who are the participants, examines implications, and raises questions about practices. Finally, Daniel J. Timko offers practical methods of teaching adults in "A Practitioner's View of Improving Instruction in Adult Vocational and Technical Instruction." (KC)
