Do We Need a Community College Institute?
Singer, Derek S.
Junior College Journal, v39 n2 October 1968
Pre- and in-service training of junior college administrators and teachers should be planned, directed, staffed, and administered by the junior college movement. Elements essential to such an institutional school are (1) the unique role of the junior college, (2) learning theory and teaching practices, (3) curriculum goals, (4) student affect, (5) administrator role, (6) student culture, (7) practice teaching, (8) programed instruction, (9) educational hardware, (10) instructional objectives, (11) sociometry, and (12) interdisciplinary planning. Certain authorities criticize university teacher training as inappropriate for junior college needs. The suggested institutional school would also: (1) qualify faculty for administrator training, (2) prepare specialists, particularly college vocational education teachers, and (3) provide a spiritual home for career junior college teachers. Problems could be (1) certification and salary modifications necessary to promote growth of the school, (2) type of degree or other recognition for graduates, (3) meeting the needs of the wide range of subjects taught in the junior colleges, (4) achieving articulation with universities and regional accrediting agencies, and (5) finding a sponsor for the school.
