Techniques: Methods for Identifying Ideas for Sponsored Projects.
Beaudin, Bart P.
Journal of Adult Education, v19 n1 insert Fall 1990
This article highlights the sources and methods that will help the adult educator discover ideas that can be developed into unsolicited proposals for the funding of projects. The following sources of ideas are listed: colleagues and friends, literature reviews, current events in the popular press, speeches by noted authorities, proceedings of learned societies, and funding agencies. Generating ideas alone is then suggested. The steps in the clustering technique, a nonlinear brainstorming process similar to free association, are described. Starting an idea file is then suggested as an organized means for storage and retrieval. Incubation is recommended as the final step. (YLB)
