Innovations in Higher Education.
Stier, William F., Jr.
Section 1 of this report reviews the findings of a Carnegie Commission study of the use or planned use of innovative practices in 882 institutions, in general, and at Briar Cliff College at Sioux City, in particular. The innovations were divided into 4 categories: (1) curriculum and instruction, (2) instructional practice, (3) student governance and service, and (4) organizational innovation. Each of these categories had many subcategories. The second section reproduces an interview between a student editor at Briar Cliff and the Academic Dean on the topic of "Change within the Institution." The third section discusses the specific changes and innovations that have taken place within the Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation at Briar Cliff. (AF)
