Industrial Arts in Postsecondary/Adult Education: An Initial Exploration of the Possibilities.
Dyrenfurth, Michael J.
This paper investigates, analyzes, synthesizes, and subsequently proposes some potential consequences of the interaction of industrial arts and postsecondary/adult education as set within the context of today's society. Part 1 first lists fourteen key societal influences, trends, and characteristics which provide a conceptual description of the context of the educational environment as a basis for the proposals to be made. It then presents an overview of the postsecondary arena's institutions, populations, programs, and objectives. Part 2 begins with a synthesis of industrial arts objectives. It then explores the possibilities of industrial arts in postsecondary/adult education. Suggestions include contributions of industrial arts to postsecondary/adult education program objective areas of (1) occupational/vocational/technical/pretechnical education, (2) recreational/leisure/cultural and avocational education, (3) basic education, and (4) transfer/liberal arts/college parallel education.
