Singer, Elizabeth W.
Materials used by the director of a project designed to assist key personnel in businesses, industries, and agencies with the educational counseling of their employees are presented. The objectives of the project, "Training Mentors as Educational Advisors of Adult Learners," were to: (1) provide two training sessions in educational counseling techniques; (2) create a linkage system between business and local educational institutions; and (3) raise awareness of the impact of high technology on assisting adults with career changes and educational goals. The manual is divided into three sections. Section I contains transparencies used in promoting support and assistance in participant recruitment. Section II provides summary analyses of the two workshops and suggestions for persons who wish to adopt the project as a model. Section III offers materials to assist in planning a similar program including a time line, letters, flyers, agendas, and evaluation forms. (DC)
