Training Delivery Systems for Adult Learners. A Bibliography.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee. Center for Instructional Development and Services.
This bibliography focuses on the training needs of adults and the incorporation of the most effective training delivery systems for adults into job training programs. It includes citations exploring current training practices, methods, and philosophies in both the private sector and the educational system; how each system can learn from the experiences of the other to improve its training programs; the importance of cooperation among all training providers; and what is on the horizon for training in the future. Research on adult learning also is included. Citations include administrative material, books, dissertations, information analyses, journal articles, opinion papers, research reports, and teaching guides. Materials for inclusion in the bibliography were located through the Florida Educational Information Service (FEIS). FEIS conducted (1) searches of computerized retrieval systems--specifically the ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center), ABI/INFORM, Dissertations Abstracts International, and MANAGEMENT CONTENTS databases on DIALOG; and (2) a manual search of current journals. Each reference contains title, date, author, annotation, format, and availability. Three journal articles are also reprinted: "30 Things We Know for Sure about Adult Learning" (Ron and Susan Zemke); "Technology Tackles the Training Dilemma" (Randy Ross); and "Design and Delivery of Customized Training Programs for New and Expanding Business and Industry" (Jolyne Ghanatabadi and Collette Saylor).
