THE IMPROVEMENT OF COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY COURSES IN THE HISTORY OF CIVILIZATION.
MAIER, PAUL L.; AND OTHERS
A DEVELOPMENTAL CONFERENCE, CONSISTING OF LEADING AUTHORITIES IN HISTORY AND RELATED DISCIPLINES, WAS HELD IN JUNE 1964. THE SUGGESTIONS AND DIRECTIVES OF THE CONFERENCE WERE IMPLEMENTED. PRELIMINARY SAMPLING VISITS WERE MADE AT REPRESENTATIVE INSTITUTIONS, AND MATERIALS AND INSTRUMENTS FOR THE MAJOR INVESTIGATION PREPARED. RESEARCH PROCEDURES INCLUDED THE DISTRIBUTION OF QUESTIONNAIRES, INTERVIEWS WITH REPRESENTATIVES FROM INSTITUTIONS, DATA COLLECTION, DISCUSSION OF FINDINGS, PREPARATION OF MODELS, AND DISSEMINATION OF THE RESULTS. THE CONCLUSIONS REACHED WERE MANY AND VARIED. IN GENERAL, THERE WAS SUPPORT FOR THE BASIC CAUSE, CONCERN OVER TEACHING METHODS, AND THE BELIEF THAT HIGH SCHOOL PREPARATION WAS NOT ADEQUATE. THE PROJECT RECEIVED GENERAL SUPPORT FROM MOST OF THE INSTRUCTORS INTERVIEWED. (RS)
