Frontiers in Course Development; System and Collaboration in University Teaching.
Good, Harold M., Ed.; Trotter, Bernard, Ed.
The present document presents a review of the proceedings of a workshop held in May 1971 on "Teaching University Biological Sciences." The major papers dealt with in the report are: (1) "Application of the Systems Approach to Teaching and Learning"; (2) "Biology and Social Change"; (3) "Biology for Biology Majors"; (4) "Design of a Short Instructional Unit"; and (5) "Pursuing the Objectives of Independent Study." The Council of Ontario Universities, under whose auspices the conference was held, had a keen interest in the conference for several reasons. Results elsewhere in the world have suggested that course team approaches to curricular development hold considerable promise for improving the quality of undergraduate education. The evidence suggests, also, that although developmental costs are high, there may be financial savings in the long run. (HS)
