Focus: A Forum on Teaching and Learning in Utah Community and Technical Colleges. Volume 2, September 1983.
A series of articles is presented on teaching and learning in Utah community and technical colleges. After an editorial comment by J. Marvin Higbee on the goals and purposes of the Utah Association of Community Colleges, V. Lowell Hansen discusses the role of the technical instructor in the information society of the 1980's. Next, Ace G. Pilkington presents the advantages and difficulties encountered in Dixie College's interdisciplinary team-taught course, "Utopias in Life and Literature." Following Greg Clark's presentation on the objectives and outcomes of Snow College's program for teaching college-level English to high school seniors, Roselyn Kirk discusses Utah Technical College at Salt Lake's (UTC/SL's) course to prepare students for careers as professional writers. Heber Moulton then describes UTC/SL's course "Accountants' Use of the Computer." Janice R. Fauske's article defines developmental education and discusses its place in today's educational arena. After Roger G. Baker reports on Snow College's study comparing the achievement of remedial-eligible students in regular and remedial classrooms, Ray H. Beckett, Jr. outlines the qualities of a good funding proposal and identifies alternative funding sources for community colleges. Finally, Vaun Waddell highlights changes in the state of Utah and their implications for community colleges. (HB)
