Lifelong Learning Manual: Training for Effective Education in Organizations.
Frith, Michael, Ed.; Reed, Horace B., Ed.
This manual is designed to provide trainers with detailed information on designing and implementing workshops concerning lifelong learning. The handbook is intended for trainers working as educational, staff development, and organizational development consultants in such orqanizations as human service agencies, business and industry, self-help groups, libraries and museums, religious institutions, and continuing education institutions. The manual first provides a brief discussion of the lifelong learning concept. The second section contains a description of the Lifelong Learning Scale Instrument, and this is followed by an explanation of the basic design of the workshop modules contained in this guide. Each module is aimed at objectives that differ as to situational and target population contexts. These workshop modules include activities for single organization target populations; for cross-agency target groups; for inter-agency conflict management; and for research and teaching usage. A final section provides trainers with an indepth explanation of the descriptors used at the two ends of the formal-nonformal continuum of the 11 variables of the lifelong learning scale. A bibliography of relevant sources, and materials used in the modules, are appended. (KC)
