Model Building in Training. Symposium on Adult Learning Potential: An Agenda for the Future.
American Univ., Washington, DC. Adult Learning Potential Inst.
This is the second of a series of three reports geared to educator training and which encompass alternative approaches to collaboration and expert input, as well as a range of diverse topics related to adult learning. This particular document describes a symposium conducted by the Adult Learning Potential Institute in June, 1980. For the symposium, a diverse group of nine selected participants were asked to respond to a number of critical questions concerning adult learning and training in the future. After an orientation by Winifred Warnat, in which she invites participants to be creative and daring, the first part of the report contains selected comments from group discussions. The second part of the report contains short papers given by the nine participants on the following issues: learning versus information processing; meeting the stressful future; leisure and adult learning; the necessity of changing old patterns to meet adult learning needs; technology, folk heroes, and adult learning; dependency and authority as blocks to adult learning; the future of the education business; adult learning potential; and new models of learning. A short selection of random comments made during the symposium and a list of participants conclude the report. (KC)
