B. Lifelong Learning Models and Program Structure

In some fields, a single organization coordinates the development and evaluation of lifelong learning programs. For example, the American Academy of Family Physicians coordinates all continuing medical education for family physicians in the United States.

In other fields, such as engineering, lifelong learning programs are developed and evaluated by a variety of corporate and professional organizations without a centralized coordinating body.

Choices 1 & 2 are presented in random order.

1.   A single organization should coordinate lifelong learning programs.

2.   Multiple organizations should develop their own lifelong learning programs independently.
