The Role of the University in Community College Technical Education.
Gillie, Angelo C.
This paper discusses six of the more important services the university could perform in the promotion and improvement of junior college technical education. Technical education is moving from the technical institute to the junior college, and the change is affecting both the training and the college. The research resources of the university could be of service in this transition by (1) directing research efforts in the teaching and administration of technical programs, (2) collecting and analyzing data on the characteristics of technical students, both sociological and academic, (3) developing, with the junior college, a model for continuous and longitudinal evaluation of the effectiveness of the technical programs, (4) helping in the design and development of new curriculums to keep pace with emerging technologies, (5) aiding in the modernization and up-dating of existing curriculums, in a three-way arrangement among industry, the university, and the college, and (6) assisting in preparing programs of special relevancy to disadvantaged urban youth, keeping in mind their particular social and psychological deprivations. The college and the university should make a science of the design, development, conduct, and evaluation of junior college technical education. (HH)
