Theory And Practice On Training And Professional Development In Adult And Continuing Education, John A. Henschke Edd Jan 1994

Theory And Practice On Training And Professional Development In Adult And Continuing Education, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

Theory and practice in the curriculum for preparation of educators of adults have seldom been addressed in the same places or time frames. Much less, there have been few attempts to bring theory and practice together in any coherent way. Nevertheless, expressions of concern and discontent from adult educators and the general adult populace involved in learning experiences abound which question "why do adult educators violate in their own programs everything that is known about how adults learn?" However, comments of satisfaction with the current situation may prompt one to suggest that theory and practice relationship will not be resolved ...


Effective Techniques/Methods For Conference Presentations: Research Issues, John A. Henschke Edd Jan 1993

Effective Techniques/Methods For Conference Presentations: Research Issues, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

Consistent pleas have been made for using participative techniques/methods in adult, continuing, community or extension education conference designs and presentations which assure more stimulating and proactive learning experiences. Despite these pleas, conference audiences, often quite large in number, are typically "treated" to lectures, papers, stilted presentations, etc., and have little opportunity for participation in the proceedings of the conference sessions. Nevertheless, many publications and one definition of "conference" suggest that although the degree of conference participativeness varies, the "better" ones have resource persons who not only imaginatively devise ways to obtain participants input via small group work as well ...


Using Adult Learning Techniques In Adult Education Conferences, John A. Henschke Edd Jan 1992

Using Adult Learning Techniques In Adult Education Conferences, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

Conversation abounds regarding the importance of conducing adult education conference through using adult learning techniques which are consistent with what is known about how adults learn. Many professionals already successfully implement this naturally, and experience very positive feedback and results. But many still struggle with the question, "Why don't we practice on ourselves what we say we believe about adult learning?" The question this paper seeks to explore is: Since the field is not very systematic in this, what needs to happen if it is to change? Much published literature suggests various designs and techniques for making the transition ...

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 ...

Use Of Appropriate Learning Techniques For Teaching Adult Residents In A Correctional Setting, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

There is a high degree of educational need in a correctional setting. In one states, 60% of the total number incarcerated are unable to read and write. The increase of that population is of some concern. In 1925, state and federal prisons held 79 people per one-hundred thousand inmates, and in 1985 the number had risen to 201 per one-hundred thousand. If adult education has as one of its goals a contribution toward enhancing the quality of individual lives and society in general, then the way in which correctional residents are taught is important. During the 1989 winter semester, a ...

Long Term Impact Evaluation Of Continuing Education Programs, 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 constantly need continuing education programs which provide up-dated information and skill development in their respective fields to keep from becoming obsolete. However, a question remains for those who seek to serve those needs: How will the long term impact of these continuing education programs be measured, determined and evaluated? One continuing education program has sought to answer that major question. In 1975 some rural health care professionals originated a request to an ...

Preparing Non-Experienced Teachers Of Adults, John A. Henschke Edd Jan 1987

Preparing Non-Experienced Teachers Of Adults, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

The expensive growth of adult and continuing education has brought with it many teachers who have subject matter expertise, but have no background, training or experience in teaching adults. While there are many of these people who are naturally successful in teaching adults, others may need assistance in becoming equipped for effective teaching in an adult learning setting. Attention is given to some adult education literature which implies, without directly stating, that research on the value of the training needs to emerge out of the model of practice. This research issue paper sets forth a new five-step theoretical model of ...

In Being, Richard Hal Rosen Dec 1975

In Being, Richard Hal Rosen

Doctoral Dissertations

This work, In Being, is an effort to establish the validity of individual thought. Personal thought (Chapter I) is elevated to the realm of objective knowledge while the knower is free from bias and preconception and aims at universals. The detached observer in science is questioned as personal knowing makes that which is known a part of the knower. Yoga, chemicals and phenomenology are explored as means for knowing and ultimate reality. Chapter I concludes with a delineation of the creative and intuitive implications for personal knowledge.

In the personal writing section (Chapter II), signs are discussed as they relate ...


Lecture Instruction Versus A Personalozed System Of Instruction: Effects On Individuals With Differing Achievement Anxiety And Academic Achievement, Edward Joseph Jacko Jun 1974

Lecture Instruction Versus A Personalozed System Of Instruction: Effects On Individuals With Differing Achievement Anxiety And Academic Achievement, Edward Joseph Jacko

Doctoral Dissertations

A relatively new instructional technique called the Personalized System of Instruction (PSI) has been highly praised by both instructors and students as a development in higher education which promises better student performance, higher morale, greater teacher effectiveness, and sometimes reduced cost of instruction. Studies of PSI conducted by others have been concerned, for the most part, with course examination scores and course grades in a variety of content, fact-oriented courses including psychology, engineering, library science, and physics.

An important issue which has not been investigated is the comparative effectiveness of the PSI method and the lecture method of instruction with ...
