Future Professional Programs: A Clashing Separateness or a Human Context?
Grant, Grace E.
This paper proposes an alternative means by which to produce improvement in the quality of professional convention programs. This method is one in which concern for professional relatedness supersedes a concern for individual competition. Dialogue as the first essential element in relatedness would encourage varied perspectives on research methodologies and interpretation of data. Discussion among presenters as well as audience perceptions would also be considered of importance. All aspects of the program process would be viewed as contributing to the professional development of the participants. Sessions would focus on fewer papers in order to allow deeper study. Wholeness, rather than fragmentation, of the group would be emphasized. This proposed approach would indicate a concern for individuals and human relatedness. (DWH)
