Adults are the voters and citizen actors of today yet environmental educators have neglected to consider adult education as an area which requires special educational strategies. In this hands-on workshop participants reviewed adult education theory, practiced various learning strategies, and evaluated model programs that work. Program topics include: (1) Adult Education Program Planning and Design; (2) Preview of Adult Environmental Education; (3) Developing Criteria for Successful Adult Environmental Education Programs; (4) Research about Adult Environmental Education; and (5) Adult Environmental Education Case Studies. The program planning session covers such issues as steps to planning and critical factors conducive to adult learning. In the preview of adult environmental education, workshop participants designed educational solutions to sample environmental education problems based on adult education theory. Adult environmental education case studies include a noncredit environment course for adults, workplace education projects, decision maker leader training, and building collaborative partnerships in community environmental education. Contains a 205-item bibliography arranged by subject. (PVD)
