Proceedings of the SUNY Inter-campus Conference on General Education (Utica, New York, March 26-28, 1980)
Cantor, Harold, Ed.
This collection of speeches and papers is the record of a two-day conference on general education, which focused on articulation, core curricula experiments, and instructional innovations. First, George H. Robertson's welcoming remarks are presented. Then, Donald D. O'Dowd points to evidence of the decline of the liberal arts, reasons for this situation, and ways of revitalizing general education. Next, Jeffrey D. Lukenbill describes Miami-Dade Community College's (FL) general education program, focusing on the assessment of students' basic skills, the core curriculum, and supportive counseling services. Four models for general education core curricula are then presented by Richard H. Robbins from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Plattsburgh, Robert Strayer from SUNY at Brockport, John S. Ramsey from SUNY at Fredonia, and Patrick J. Hill from SUNY at Stony Brook. Next, Robert McKinney examines the relevance of general education to global socioeconomic problems, and William E. Pelz discusses educational gerontology programs at community colleges. In the final two papers, Milton Richards discusses the widening gulf between the aspirations, frames of reference, and modes of behavior of general education instructors and those of their students, and Russell Bliss describes a computer-assisted instructional program for a music appreciation course.
