The Importance of Teaching, A Memorandum to the New College Teacher.
Hazen Foundation, New Haven, CT.
The Committee on Undergraduate Teaching was formed in 1964 in response to an urgent need to improve college teaching and give it greater importance. This report examines the present and prospective situations on the American campus as they affect learning and teaching and draws attention to changes that are in progress or may take place in the future. It considers the choices open to the young teacher such as where, under what conditions and how he may practice his profession. It also explores ways in which he may conceive his teaching role, models he may follow, strategy and tactics he may employ, and procedures and relationships available to him. The relationships between the young professor, his students and the subject matter are examined in detail. The report also discusses the preparation of teachers, the evaluation of teaching, and ways in which colleges can nurture effective teaching. (AF)
