Model Building in Training. Toward the Twenty-First Century: Critical Issues in Adult Learning.
American Univ., Washington, DC. Adult Learning Potential Inst.
This is the third 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 begins with a forecast of what might occur over the next twenty years in adult learning. The remaining five sections present critical issues that have implications for adult learning and training in the future. The first section focuses on the critical issue of unemployment, in which the "humanness factor" is presented as a major void in resolving the dilemmas faced by unemployed workers; next it provides a model that begins to address the dilemmas through the humanness factor. The next section acknowledges aging as a critical issue that needs to be addressed through training practices, demonstrating a method by using the family as a model of training. Leisure is the critical issue focused upon in the third section, which discusses the importance of educators needing to understand the profound impact that increased leisure will have on society in the future; four training models are presented. The fourth critical issue identified is women, with special emphasis placed on the potential and emerging power of middle-aged women in molding our culture; this discussion is followed by a comprehensive training agenda. Finally, a leadership training model is set forth for addressing the fifth critical issue, community education.
