Assessment of Scientists'/Engineers' Continuing Education Needs in Small, Geographically-Dispersed Industries. Final Report.
Adams, W. Sam
Reported is one of five studies of how scientists and engineers, located far from metropolitan areas, are able to maintain knowledge and skill levels in rapidly changing fields. This investigation concentrated on a representative sample of 30 small industries in central and northern Wisconsin. Interviews and questionnaires were used to assess interests and involvement in continuing education of both employers and research and development personnel. Results presented deal with types of continuing education opportunities, levels of participation, program effectiveness, company policies, and employees' needs and interests in continuing education.
