TEACHING IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, A SERIES OF SEMINARS CO-SPONSORED BY BROWN UNIVERSITY AND ROGER WILLIAMS JUNIOR COLLEGE.
SALATINO, ANTHONY
THE CONTENT OF THREE LECTURES PROVIDED THE BASIS FOR DISCUSSION AT THESE SEMINARS--(1) ALTHOUGH THE JUNIOR COLLEGE TEACHER IS MORE INTERESTED IN HIS STUDENTS AND IN RESEARCH TO IMPROVE TEACHING THAN IS HIS 4-YEAR COLLEGE COUNTERPART, HIS PROBLEMS DIFFER CHIEFLY IN DEGREE FROM THOSE OF THE SENIOR COLLEGE TEACHER. AN EFFECTIVE TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM SHOULD INCLUDE ACADEMIC CONTENT, SUPERVISED TEACHING, AND A PROFESSIONAL SEMINAR. (2) TECHNIQUES SUGGESTED FOR IMPROVING TEACHING INCLUDE OBSERVATION AND SELF-EVALUATION, PRECISION IN DEFINITION OF OBJECTIVES, USE OF METHODS AND MEDIA APPROPRIATE TO OBJECTIVES, USE OF SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS AND READINGS, APPROPRIATE ASSIGNMENTS AND EVALUATION DEVICES, ENCOURAGEMENT OF DISCOVERY AND SELF-DIRECTION PROCESSES, WILLINGNESS TO ADAPT AND INNOVATE, SKILL IN QUESTIONING, AND AN EXCHANGE OF IDEAS. (3) SUCCESS IN EXPERIMENTATION DEPENDS ON SUCH FACTORS AS INSTITUTIONAL READINESS, FACULTY PARTICIPATION AND SUPPORT, ASSESSMENT OF SOCIETAL NEEDS, STUDY AND UNDERSTANDING OF STUDENTS, AND DEVELOPMENT OF INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES AND CURRICULUM MATERIALS.
