Summary

An assessment of a psychology faculty enhancement program which provided up-to-date information on aging was done. In 1989/90 the program involved a 2-week institute for 25 teachers from two-year and four-year colleges, providing them with consultation both during and after the institute, and maintaining contact with them through reunions and newsletters. A 1-week follow-up institute was held in 1991 and attended by 18 of the original group. Assessment was conducted by monitoring all of the activities, by collecting data on participants' knowledge and attitudes before and after the institute, and by administering evaluation questionnaires at the end of each institute. The participants showed a statistically significant change on a knowledge test and on three attitude scales. They also rated the program as a whole very highly. Responses on the follow-up questionnaire indicated that as a result of participating in this program they had developed a stronger sense of the value of incorporating aging in the curriculum, had read more about aging, had incorporated new material in their courses, and had become more involved in aging-related activities. In addition, a large number of participants had maintained contact with distinguished visiting professors and with colleagues from other schools. The program received support from the National Science Foundation. (JB)
