Teaching the Large Class at the Undergraduate Level. Final Report.
Lane Community Coll., Eugene, OR.
In the summer of 1970, a study was undertaken at Lane Community College, Eugene, Oregon, in an attempt to explore the effectiveness of certain organizational patterns in teaching a large class at the undergraduate level. This document presents the final report of the study, which is organized as follows: Chapter 1 presents a review of related research and a summary of the implications of that research as it pertains to the project. After a statement of objectives and assumptions, Chapter 2 offers a description of the class organization and the actual operation of the large class lecture sessions, the small class discussion groups, and the leader seminars. Various administrative considerations and the project evaluations by the instructional staff are also included in this chapter. Chapter 3 provides an independent evaluation of the large class project, including an account of the sources of data, a description of the questionnaire instrument and its use, and analysis of the findings in light of project objectives.
