THE FACULTY--A RESOURCE OF GREAT PRICE.
KEETON, MORRIS
A FEW OUTSTANDING FACULTY MEMBERS, PROPERLY EQUIPPED AND SUPPORTED, CAN EVOKE FAR GREATER LEARNING FROM STUDENTS THAN TWICE AS MANY WHO ARE POORLY PREPARED. THEREFORE, ALTHOUGH COLLEGE TEACHERS GENERALLY CARRY IMPOSSIBLY HEAVY LOADS, THE PROVISION OF MORE FACULTY FOR THE SAME WORK IS NOT THE SOLUTION. SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM OF OVERLOADED TEACHERS INCLUDE USING MORE AND BETTER EQUIPMENT, EMPLOYING NEW STRATEGIES, AND ENGAGING IN INTERINSTITUTIONAL COOPERATION. THE ADMINISTRATION AND STAFF CAN HELP TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM BY CREATING A PROPER TEACHING ATMOSPHERE. A THREE ELEMENT PROGRAM IS SUGGESTED FOR RETHINKING THE PRACTICES AND PHILOSOPHIES OF TEACHING--(1) CLARIFICATION OF FACULTY PROFESSIONAL OBJECTIVES, (2) ASSIMILATION OF NEW FACULTY ROLES, AND (3) COOPERATION WITH UNIVERSITIES AND OTHER INSTITUTIONS IN THE ACTIVITIES AND DEPLOYMENT OF FACULTY. THIS ARTICLE IS REPRINTED FROM "THE CHRISTIAN SCHOLAR," VOLUME 50, NUMBER 2, SUMMER 1967. (HW)
