Strategies for Teaching the Nontraditional Student Off Campus: The Communiversity.
Tkachuk, Henry T.
In describing the "communiversity" program for adults and nontraditional students in the Fargo-Moorhead (Minnesota) area, this paper notes how the program developed from education programs of local churches to an expanded offering of adult continuing education in the liberal arts and sciences, personal and family life development, and business, civil, and social concerns. The main section of the paper reports on evaluative data illustrating the popularity and scope of this communiversity program. Also discussed are the sources of funding for the courses, responses from participants in the 1980 communiversity program, characteristics of the program's faculty and students, and topics in speech communication that are planned for future communiversity programs. The final section of the paper describes methods used for developing and advertising the communiversity concept to the public. (RL)
