About the Edition

These are times of great opportunity as well as challenge for continuing education (CE) programs in colleges and universities. While lifelong learning remains central to CE's mission, means of promoting and delivering adult education programs through distance and online learning are undergoing continuous transformation by novel information technologies. Within institutions, CE units are increasingly collaborating with academic departments. In addition, demographic shifts have resulted in new audiences and types of programs offered, both credit and non-credit. Schools - especially state-supported ones - have been pressured to increase their participation in economic development. All these changes carry administrative considerations. This volume suggests perspectives and solutions for the challenges that must be successfully confronted by today's CE programs and the professionals who develop them. -- from back cover.
