INNOVATION IN HEALTH EDUCATION AT THE JUNIOR COLLEGE.
CAMPBELL, CHARLES E.
A REVIEW OF RELEVANT LITERATURE, VISITS TO NINE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGES AND INTERVIEWS WITH ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY MEMBERS WERE THE MEANS OF COLLECTING INFORMATION ABOUT HEALTH EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND INNOVATIONS IN THIS INSTRUCTIONAL FIELD. THE HEALTH EDUCATION COURSES IN THE COLLEGES VISITED WERE TAUGHT IN A TRADITIONAL MANNER BY MEMBERS OF THE PHYSICAL EDUCATION OR LIFE SCIENCE DEPARTMENTS, WHO WERE MORE INTERESTED IN THEIR SPECIALTIES THAN IN HEALTH EDUCATION. OTHER THAN AN ATTEMPT AT INDEPENDENT STUDY, GRANTING OF CREDIT BY EXAMINATION, AND USE OF COMMERCIAL TELEVISION FOR A CREDIT COURSE, THE INNOVATIONS FOUND BY THE AUTHOR WERE INSIGNIFICANT. IN SEVERAL INSTITUTIONS, THERE WAS NO ATTEMPT AT INNOVATION, AND LITTLE KNOWLEDGE OF FORCES CAUSING CHANGE WAS FOUND. ABSENCE OF PROGRESS IN INSTRUCTIONAL INNOVATION AND IMPROVEMENT IS DUE PRIMARILY TO LACK OF QUALIFIED, TRAINED HEALTH EDUCATORS. (WO)
