Focus: A Forum on Teaching and Learning in Utah Community and Technical Colleges, v1 Sep 1982.
This annual collection of articles on teaching and learning in Utah's 2-year colleges begins with an examination by Don A. Carpenter of the slow growth and acceptance of the comprehensive concept of the community college prevalent in other states. Next, Arvo Van Alstyne discusses "Educational Purposes and Priorities" and argues for a diversified educational system that will recognize the multiplicity of vocations, individuals, and institutions. Then, Susan Burdett emphasizes the importance of the research paper in leading students to a direct application of their knowledge. After Michael A. Petersen's description of the development of a new general education program at the College of Eastern Utah (CEU), Robert I. Taniguchi outlines the creation of CEU's core course in energy. Next, Michael M. Homer discusses methods of "Integrating the Computer into Curricular Planning." Then, Veonne Howlett presents methods of motivating students in the classroom through recognition, reward, and reinforcement. Following Gary Parnell's sketch of a structure for facilitating literature instruction, Janice Kleen outlines the benefits of teaching expressive writing in content area courses. Finally, Vaun Waddell examines some of the social changes that will have an impact on education in Utah in the coming years. (HB)
