CHRISTOPHER, JOHNNY L.
REPLIES TO A QUESTIONNAIRE SENT TO JUNIOR COLLEGE TEACHERS IN WYOMING SHOWED THAT (1) FEW HAD TAKEN OR WANTED A UNIVERSITY COURSE RELATED DIRECTLY TO THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, (2) MOST HAD A MASTER'S DEGREE AND SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHING EXPERIENCE, WANTED TO STUDY COMMON PROBLEMS WITH THE UNIVERSITY TEACHERS, PREFERRED THE OPEN DOOR POLICY WITH REMEDIAL COURSES, WOULD ACCEPT VOLUNTARY INSERVICE TRAINING, AND PLANNED TO REMAIN IN JUNIOR COLLEGE TEACHING, AND (3) ALL WERE UNLIKELY SOON TO PRESS FOR MERIT PAY OR FACULTY RANK, WANTED AN ORIENTATION PROGRAM, OPPOSED SETTING UP CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS, AND WANTED TO REMAIN THE BALANCE OF TRANSFER, TERMINAL, AND GENERAL COURSES. THE RESEARCHER RECOMMENDS (1) MORE TEACHERS WITH SPECIFIC JUNIOR COLLEGE PREPARATION AND A WIDER GEOGRAPHIC REPRESENTATION, (2) GREATER ACCESS TO THE "COMMUNITY COLLEGE" COURSE OF THE UNIVERSITY EXTENSION SERVICE, (3) MORE MEETINGS WITH THE UNIVERSITY STAFF TO EXAMINE A POSSIBLE INTERMEDIATE DEGREE AND SPECIAL COURSES FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE TEACHERS, (4) CONTINUED EXPERIMENTATION FOR BETTER TEACHING, (5) A SYSTEM OF PROFESSIONAL UPDATING, WITH A LEAVE POLICY, (6) A BETTER PUBLIC IMAGE OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, (7) BETTER COMMUNICATION BETWEEN STAFF AND ADMINISTRATION, (8) MORE REMEDIAL COURSES, AND (9) CONSIDERATION OF AN INTERNSHIP PROGRAM AND OF ESTABLISHING A STATE COMMISSION ON TEACHER STANDARDS. THIS REPORT WAS SUBMITTED AS A DOCTORAL DISSERTATION AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING. (HH)
