Pretechnical Post Secondary Remedial Programs Training Institute. Final Report.
Tompkins, Jack E.
To promote and accelerate the creation of remedial training programs in technical institutes and community colleges, 46 participants from a wide geographic representation and from varied positions were selected to attend a 5-day training institute. Presentations by consultants and group discussions were utilized to meet the objects of developing a total plan and portions of the plan pertaining to guidance services, design and implementation of student development programs, and curriculum content and instructional materials. Some conclusions were: (1) A diversity of opinion exists as to what type of student should be accepted into a pretechnical or student development program, (2) The need for more definitions and directions of remedial type programs at the postsecondary level is acute, (3) Confusion exists concerning scheduling, (4) There is a need for soundly constructed and tested curriculum designs, and (5) There is no single source of information on how to establish a successful program. Institute presentations, a list of participants and schedule of events are appended. (SB)
