Theo was Director of the University’s Centre for Continuing Education. The Centre’s work had evolved over the preceding 20 years or so from a broad-ranging program of general adult education into one which had a singular focus on continuing professional education (CPE). That process of organisational change had been a gradual one, in which the Centre progressively withdrew from general adult education while expanding the continuing education program and developing an exclusive focus on continuing professional education. The evolutionary approach to change allowed all of those persons who were connected with the programs to adjust relatively painlessly to the changes — giving them the opportunity to develop new or modified interests and commitments in place of those that were being diminished.
