Authors:
Downing, George Leonard
Abstract:
In view of the lack of information relative to the role of plane­ tariums in the United States and Canada in the field of adult education, the problem which this study was designed to investigate was as follows: 1. To obtain from a random sample of planetarium directors in the United States and Canada factual data to indicate the types of services which they provided for their adult clientele, along with other data related to these services. 2. To obtain from the members of the sample their opinions regarding the feasibility and desirability of utilizing selected principles of adult learning in th e ir adult education programs. In addition, to determine the present degree of utilization of these selected principles. 3. To solicit opinions from the sample members regarding how they ranked the principles of adult learning in order of importance to their own adult education programs.
