Proceedings of the World Conference on Continuing Engineering Education (1st, Mexico City, Mexico, April 25-27, 1979).
Grayson, Lawrence P., Ed.; Biedenbach, Joseph M., Ed.
These proceedings contain the complete papers presented at a world conference convened in Mexico City, April 1979, to discuss the topic of continuing education (CE) for engineers. Additional papers in the proceedings are intended to give a fuller set of ideas on a given topic and provide a basis for discussions with their authors. The report is divided into conference sessions in which papers and related panel discussions are grouped according to general topics of interest. These include the following: (1) the super industrial revolution; (2) adult motivation; (3) CE and the government; (4) professional society programs; (5) university programs; and (6) industry/government programs. Other sessions are devoted to areas of specific interest which are not covered in detail under the preceding topics. A comprehensive and authoritative exposure to media-based CE for engineers is presented in a workshop format. Included are photographs, biographical information, and addresses for all of the authors, session chairmen, and other key persons involved in organizing the conference. (Author/CS)
