This four-part faculty handbook provides information on Vista College (VC), a community college without a traditional campus; its administrative procedures and resources; and on various aspects of instruction. Following introductory material, Section I provides background information about VC, including college objectives, student characteristics and goals, faculty characteristics, facilities and programs, and community participation. Section II outlines administrative procedures, regarding, for example, registration, class size, attendance, grading, and instructor evaluation. Resources and services are examined in Section III, which covers: (1) teaching resources for faculty (i.e., teaching/learning consultants; a faculty journal; seminars, workshops, and papers; a professional resource library; and faculty support groups); (2) instructional support services, such as audiovisual, printing, and duplicating services; supplies; and course publicity; and (3) student counseling services, including individual and class-site, group counseling and programs for the disabled. The final section presents articles on teaching at non-campus colleges. Topics covered include general teaching tips, adult learners, course outlines and overviews (with examples), first-class meetings, assessment procedures, course development, and community classrooms. Also included are a glossary, bibliography, and articles on theory and practice from the VC faculty journal. (KL)
