Description

Reviews

The authors offer practical advice to novice and experienced administrators on the day-to-day duties and responsibilities of organizing and administering successful programs in adult, community, and continuing education settings. Administering Successful Programs for Adults is designed to assist administrators in understanding various approaches to the administrative process, assessing clientele needs and interests, securing financing and developing budgets, selecting paid and voluntary staff, creating effective marketing and public relations strategies, evaluating learning, instructors, and programs, understanding legal and ethical administrative issues, and finally mapping out a professional development plan for remaining effective. Throughout this book, many practical and useful strategies, approaches, forms, and tips to assist the administrator to be more effective are provided. This book will prove to be a valuable resource for administrators who work in community-based adult, community, and continuing education organizations, deans and directors of continuing higher education, directors of adult and community school programs, trainers in business and industry, and educational consultants.

"Written by experienced adult educators, the book avoids complex management jargon. Although the book draws on important theories and models from research in the field of management, the authors take care to present the information in the language of an adult education program developer." -- Bradley C. Courtenay, The University of Georgia.

"Overall, I can recommend this book as a good introduction to the art and practice of administering programs within more traditional adult, community, and continuing education settings." -- Faye Wiesenberg, The University of Calgary, Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education, Vol. 24, No. 1, Spring 1998.
