Faculty Exchange Programs.
Terrell, Roland
After examining the foundation of Florida Junior College's (FJC's) Faculty Exchange Program, which involved gaining administrative support and making necessary contacts with other colleges, this descriptive report goes on to recount the experiences of the first three sets of instructors to be exchanged. First, the report describes the selection of a social science professor and two alternates from FJC and of a professor of literature and drama at Nelson and Colne College (N&CC) in England and then relates the acclimatization of each to different educational systems, climates, and houses. The report continues with a discussion of the unexpected difficulties which occurred prior to the second exchange of an FJC psychology professor and an N&CC engineering professor and the unplanned benefit of the establishment of a Women's Center at N&CC. Next, the exchange of a communications professor from Montreal's Dawson College with one from FJC is described. Suggestions for avoiding problems are then presented with regard to health insurance, inspection of the exchange college, personalities of the professors, finances, and the importance of having alternates. An enumeration of the benefits of the program precedes the final section which offers ten suggestions for starting a faculty exchange program. (AYC)
