THE STEPHENS COLLEGE HOUSE PLAN--EXPERIMENTATION AND EVALUATION.
LEYDEN, RALPH C.
STEPHENS COLLEGE INTRODUCED A "HOUSE PLAN" IN THE FALL OF 1960 AS AN EXPERIMENT IN USE OF THE RESIDENCE HALL AS A CENTER FOR BOTH LIVING AND LEARNING. RESIDENT COUNSELORS AND FACULTY MEMBERS WORK WITH THE STUDENTS IN ANY ONE HOUSE, INSTRUCTING THEM IN A COMMON BODY OF GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES AND HELPING THEM WORK OUT THEIR EDUCATIONAL PLANS. THE INSTRUCTION MAKES USE OF EXPERIMENTAL PATTERNS OF TEACHING, THE POTENTIALS OF GROUP STUDY, AND AUDIOVISUAL AND ELECTRONIC EDUCATIONAL DEVICES. HAVING THE FACULTY TEACH A BASIC BODY OF INFORMATION PREVENTS THE OVERLAPPING OF COURSE MATERIAL AND FACILITATES DEMONSTRATING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DISCIPLINES. THE FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING RESULTING FROM THE HOUSE PLAN PERMITS EXTENDED GROUP FIELD TRIPS AND PROVIDES THE FACULTY WITH MORE TIME FOR PROFESSIONAL GROWTH. (AD)
