Committee on Preparation of Junior College Teachers: Master Plan Phase III.
Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
The purpose of this report is to outline recommendations for submission to the Illinois Board of Higher Education on the preparation of junior college teachers. Ways in which Illinois' universities could alleviate the shortage and improve the quality of junior college teachers are suggested. The report is organized into two parts, consisting of the preparation of instructors (1) in liberal arts and general education areas, and (2) in technical subjects. Part one recommends upgrading the present master's degree programs, establishing new programs, and designing new doctoral programs specifically for the junior college area. Part two focuses on the preparation of teachers of technical subjects, indicating the need for vocational-technical teachers and recommending a curriculum and programs that would meet this need. (BB)
