LARGE LECTURE SECTION QUESTIONNAIRE. SUMMARY OF RESPONSES.
Pennsylvania Univ., Philadelphia. Univ. Planning Office.
TO ASSIST IN STUDYING THE PROBLEM OF ACCOMMODATING LARGE CLASS SECTIONS, THE PENNSYLVANIA UNIVERSITY PLANNING OFFICE CONDUCTED A STUDY TO DETERMINE THE NATURE OF THE EXPERIENCES WITH LARGE GROUP TEACHING IN FORTY-TWO MAJOR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. RESPONSES BY THIRTY-SEVEN INSTITUTIONS ARE INCLUDED IN THIS REPORT INDICATING UNDER-GRADUATE ENROLLMENT, SIZE OF THE LARGE LECTURE SECTIONS, ESTIMATED RESULTS OF LARGE GROUP PRESENTATIONS, TYPE OF FACILITIES AVAILABLE, THE INSTITUTION'S INTENT TO CONTINUE THESE SECTIONS, AND ANY ADDITIONAL COMMENTS BY THE RESPONDENTS ON THE USE OF LARGE LECTURE PRESENTATIONS. INFORMATION IS LIMITED IN THAT NO SIGNIFICANT INFORMATION IS PROVIDED ABOUT RESPONSES OF FACULTY AND STUDENTS TO THE VARIOUS METHODS OF DEALING WITH LARGE COURSE ENROLLMENTS. THE EXTENT TO WHICH FACTORS OF ECONOMY, EFFICIENCY, EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY, OR SIMPLE EXPEDIENCE WHICH MAY AFFECT THE DECISIONS TO SCHEDULE LARGE LECTURE SECTIONS WAS NOT REVEALED BY THE STUDY. THE MAJORITY OF RESPONSES INDICATED THAT A LARGE GROUP PRESENTATION HAS GIVEN VERY SATISFACTORY TO ADEQUATE RESULTS AND MOST PLAN TO CONTINUE THIS TYPE OF PRESENTATION. (BH)
