Smith, Wendell L., Ed.
This volume discusses the Airlie House Lifelong Learning Leaders Retreat and also contains the texts of papers presented during the retreat. Included in the first section of the volume are the following consultants' position papers: "An Opportunity for Cooperation," by Lloyd Davis; "Thoughts on Developing America's Human Resources for the Future," by Mike Doyle; "A Once-in-a-Century Update of the Educational Model," by Reck Niebuhr; and "A Loosely Coupled System for Adult Education," by Thurman White. Listed in the next chapter are 22 issues that were identified by retreat participants as major problems confronting the lifelong learning profession. Analyzed next are the following alternatives to these major issues: collaborative effort among adult education associations and groups on legislative matters affecting them; increasing awareness of the importance of lifelong learning by the general public, educational institutions, and teachers; development of a national and federal policy on lifelong learning; and the restructure and reallocation of strategies to respond to future technology. The final three chapters of the report are devoted to a synthesis of major ideas advanced at the retreat, the activities of the sponsors of the retreat in the area of lifelong learning, and follow-up plans. (Appendixes to the report include a list of retreat participants, an agenda, and a composite of preretreat participants' questionnaires.) (MN)
