Knox, Alan B.; And Others
These 13 case descriptions of adult education programs in the United States are part of a set that reflects a cooperative effort by adult educators to increase international understanding of various educational programs for adults in their societal context. A face sheet for each program provides this information: name, organization, and address of the person who prepared the case description; program name or title; type of program; type of organization with which the case program is associated; and basic characteristics of service. The 13 case descriptions are Agricultural Extension (Knox); Cooperative Extension System (Rivera); National Issues Forum (Knox); Educational Programs for Local Government Officials in Illinois (Kozoll, Lauts, Schweitzer); YWCA Refugee Program (Knox); Indiana University Independent Study by Correspondence Program (Di Silvestro); Adult Basic Education (Knox); Alcoholics Anonymous (Knox); Continuing Medical Education (Pearson, Cervero); Credit Union Staff Development (Knox); Libraries and Literacy--Tulsa (Johnson); Libraries and Literacy--Weirton (Johnson); and Helping Stock Brokers Cope with Stress (Knox). In addition to the case descriptions, this document includes information on the World Perspective case study project as well as indexes of all cases by country and by category. (YLB)
