Mandatory Continuing Education: Does It Really Protect Society From Incompetent Health Professionals, Patricia A. Mcpartland

RISK: Health, Safety & Environment (1990-2002)

Although the focus is narrow, this article argues that, in the face of short half-lives of current knowledge, continuing education requirements are needed and suggests possible improvements in the way that continuing education is implemented.

A Study Of Leadership In Organizations And Higher Education, Sara A. Grachek Aug 1990

A Study Of Leadership In Organizations And Higher Education, Sara A. Grachek

Culminating Projects in Information Media

PROBLEM:

Many members of business organizations rely on an abundance of materials to learn about leadership education or training.

The purpose of this study is to examine whether four-year colleges and universities can provide the type of leadership education or training currently being sought by business organizations.

PROCEDURE:

Business organizations were surveyed as to whether they felt leadership education at the college and university level would be ...

Minerva At Large: A Study Of The Leadership Styles And Educational Philosophies Of The Department Of Education Secretaries, Mark Y. Herring

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Since that time, four individuals have served as secretaries: Shirley M. Hufstedler, Terrel H. Bell, William J. Bennett, and Lauro F. Cavazos. Examined in this study were the importance of leadership styles and educational philosophies as exhibited by the four secretaries.

The Use Of Audio Interaction In A Telecourse Offered By Satellite: Foundation Of Adult Basic Education, John A. Henschke Edd Jan 1990

The Use Of Audio Interaction In A Telecourse Offered By Satellite: Foundation Of Adult Basic Education, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

The information explosion in our technologically oriented society has brought with it a shortened time span of cultural and factual knowledge change in each succeeding decade. Thus, professionals being educated in graduate Adult Education/Human Resources Development programs as teachers and for other roles need a lifelong learning perspective to prevent their becoming obsolete. These graduate programs have increased in North America from approximately thirty in 1960 to more than three hundred in 1990. However, a question remains for those who seek to serve these needs. How will the long-term impact of these graduate programs be measured, determined and evaluated ...
