Public Response on Continuing Education: Working Paper.
Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities, Toronto.; Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto.
This report presents results of a task force analysis and synthesis of responses from the field regarding the discussion paper, Continuing Education: The Third System. It consists of seven components from which the task force analyzed responses. Within each of these sections, the analysis outlines points of consensus; points of controversy; and points of differences between school boards, colleges, and universities. The seven categories are definition and philosophy, adult basic education, coordination (local and provincial coordination and the roles of institutions), infrastructure (training of adult educators, provision of counseling and information services, information for future planning, and research), access to continuing education (TV Ontario, correspondence education, and distance education), legislation and funding, and francophone response. A list of points raised by respondents and not covered elsewhere in the report is also provided. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the report, include a distribution list of the discussion paper; a list of respondents; a review of selected literature relating to continuing education, entitled "Historical and Developmental Trends in Continuing Education"; and a copy of the response form.
