DEVELOPING SPECIALISTS IN LEARNING.
COHEN, ARTHUR M.; AND OTHERS
THE UCLA JUNIOR COLLEGE TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAM NOT ONLY PREPARES GRADUATE STUDENTS TO WORK IN JUNIOR COLLEGES, BUT IS DESIGNED TO CAUSE CHANGE WITHIN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE SYSTEM. IT DOES NOT PREPARE TEACHERS SIMPLY TO ACCEPT CURRENT INSTRUCTIONAL PATTERNS, BUT EXPECTS THEM TO ALTER THE PATTERNS TOWARD A TRUE TEACHING-LEARNING SITUATION. THE PROGRAM RECRUITS, SELECTS, AND TESTS TEACHER CANDIDATES, AND PROVIDES COUNSELING AND PLACEMENT SERVICES. REPRESENTATIVES OF THE PROGRAM WORK DIRECTLY WITH JUNIOR COLLEGE FACULTY MEMBERS AND ADMINISTRATORS TO IMPROVE EVALUATION PROCEDURES, RECRUITING PRACTICES, AND RESEARCH APPROACHES. THE PREPARATION PROGRAM WISHES TO FOCUS THE JUNIOR COLLEGE ON ITS PRIME PURPOSE OF CAUSING LEARNING. THE EIGHT UNITS OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE CURRICULUM COURSE COVER (1) COMPREHENSION OF THE FUNCTIONS, FACILITIES, AND STUDENTS OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, (2) THE COMPLEXITY OF THE CURRICULUM, (3) LEARNING (PRINCIPLES OF CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION), (4) CRITERIA AND CLASSIFICATION OF GOALS AND OBJECTIVES, (5) TESTS AND ASSESSMENTS (EFFECT OF A CURRICULUM ON EACH PUPIL), (6) INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA (AND THEIR APPROPRIATE USE), (7) BUILDING A JUNIOR COLLEGE COURSE, AND (8) PERIODIC ASSESSMENT OF CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION (TO MEET CHANGING NEEDS AND MAINTAIN RELEVANCE). THE SYLLABUS SERVES AS A TEACHING DEVICE AND AS A MODEL FOR COURSES THE TRAINEE WILL LATER CONSTRUCT AS PART OF HIS OWN COURSE WORK. (HH)
