A Report to the Kellogg Foundation on Operations for the Year 1969-70.
Northwestern Univ., Evanston, IL. Center for the Teaching Professions.
This document is the first annual report of the Center for the Teaching Professions at Northwestern University. The specific objectives of the Center that were proposed to the sponsoring agency, the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, are: (1) to improve the teaching of prospective teachers and present members of the faculty in a variety of fields at Northwestern; (2) to service other educational institutions and professional organizations to improve their teaching programs; and (3) to serve as a model for similar centers at other universities. The efforts for the first year of operation at the Center are related to 3 broad areas of concern: (1) instructional improvement projects involving the time and effort of individual faculty members throughout the university; (2) the improvement of instruction involving graduate students, and concern for the inclusion of teaching competence as a parallel goal to competence in research skills in Ph.D. programs; and (3) programs involving opportunities for faculty to become identified with the Center in a way that would help them develop a program of self-education and that would make the resources of the Center available to them for the development of any creative teaching plans they wish to explore. The specific implementations of these objectives are described in the paper. (HS)
