An Approach Toward the Development and Implementation of a Community College Education Center.
Heinrich, Carl L.
The Kansas State Teachers College (KSTC) has designed a Community College Education Center for the preparation of community college teachers, administrators, counselors, service staff and other support personnel. The Center will also provide cooperative in-service activities for Kansas community college personnel, orientation and service to KSTC students who transfer from community colleges, and assist in the development of community colleges in Kansas. This document describes the process of formulating the Center's goals and instructional objectives, and includes course outlines, course units and objectives, as well as descriptions of internships which will be required of students attending the center. A basic assumption of the Center is that it must be a cooperative effort of KSTC staff and Kansas community college personnel. Because of an emphasis on flexibility of scheduling and the need for student on-the-job experience in the community college, a competency-base module approach was adopted. Objectives and tasks were identified so that students attending the Center would know exactly what was expected of them. For example, future community college teachers are expected to be competent in their teaching field, have knowledge of various teaching-learning strategies, understand the needs and characteristics of junior college students, and know the philosophy and functions of community colleges.
