An identification and classification of leadership competencies and skills of community educators
The following project was undertaken as an exploratory experience in comparing various materials in the broad conceptual area of competency or skill interpretation and attempts to draw from those materials a possible new model or structure for use in the development of curriculum and practicum experiences for community educators. It is not intended to be a definitive work but rather a compilation of several sources into a single format with the possibility of providing a foundation for further study and exploration. The topic, competencies or skills of community educators, was of interest to the writer and appeared to be an area in which further study might lead to the development of new dynamics in producing individualized learning experiences for those wishing to enter the field of community education.Before he even begins a learning project, a person faces questions... He must decide ... what to learn. (13)A. Tough, 1971 The Adult's Learning Projects.
