Assessment of Laboratory and Field Work Activities. AIR 1983 Annual Forum Paper.
Belanger, Charles H.; Tremblay, Lise
Laboratory and professional training activities among instructional units at the Universite de Montreal were evaluated with respect to the prominence of such activities in degree programs, the amount of work required of students, the involvement of the various teaching and supervisory personnel, and the costs. The organization of laboratory and field work activities was also assessed, including student supervision and section size, time allocation of teaching personnel, and the cost of staff and activities. Findings include the following: large gaps were found among units with respect to costs of these activities; cost variations among departments depended on such factors as the structure of activities, the intensity of supervision, and the category of teaching personnel responsible for the activities; and there were no common patterns of organization, which on the basis of disciplinary lines could be used to predict costs of activities. Information is presented on: the relative importance of laboratory and clinical/internship activities within curricula and the contribution to student credit hours of laboratory and clinical/internship activities.
