TIME FOR INSTRUCTIONAL RESEARCH.
CANFIELD, ALBERT A.
ALTHOUGH COMMUNITY JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE PRIMARY LABORATORIES OF FORMAL HUMAN LEARNING, THERE IS A SURPRISING SCARCITY OF STUDIES OF THEIR INSTRUCTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS. LITERATURE AVAILABLE IN THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE INFORMATION INCLUDES DESCRIPTIONS OF INSTRUCTIONAL PROCESSES AND OF INNOVATIVE ACTIVITIES, BUT LITTLE INFORMATION IS PRESENTED CONCERNING THE RESULTS OF INSTRUCTION. AREAS IN WHICH EVALUATIVE STUDIES ARE REPORTED INCLUDE TELEVISED INSTRUCTION, PROGRAMMED MATERIALS, CLASS SIZE, AND VARIATIONS IN INSTRUCTOR TECHNIQUES. TO ATTAIN THE GOAL OF UTILIZING THE BEST POSSIBLE INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICES FOR STUDENT LEARNING, JUNIOR COLLEGE EDUCATORS MUST HAVE RESEARCH DATA FROM STUDIES WHICH OBSERVE BASIC DESIGN FEATURES. RECENT ACTIVITIES OF THE UNITED STATES OFFICE OF EDUCATION, COLLEGE FACULTIES, AND PRIVATE FOUNDATIONS INDICATE A TREND TOWARD MORE EFFECTIVE RESEARCH. THIS DOCUMENT IS VOLUME 2, NUMBER 4 OF "JUNIOR COLLEGE RESEARCH REVIEW," DECEMBER 1967. (WO)
