An Instructional Scheme to Involve the Junior College Staff and Students with the Community.
Moore, Richard S.
This report examined the role of the community college in personal and community development through adult education. Legislation, resulting from current social dissatisfaction, calls for publicizing postsecondary, real-world education. Teachers and students can fill this need by educating the public on the value and nature of offerings at community colleges. Two research designs were presented. The first, for developing a public relations program using college staff, students, curriculum, and facilities, proposed that the college establish local instructional TV and radio networks that include both broadcasting stations and learning centers to draw the college and community closer together and educate the public in the skills of community development. The faculty and students of the education, political science, and work experience departments would coordinate the effort although the total college and curriculum would be involved. An 8-step plan to implement the program, with responsibilities and objectives outlined for each step, was provided. The second research design presented a way to analyze public knowledge, attitudes, and interests regarding adult education and training via a survey questionnaire, with sample included. The survey would help to publicize adult education to appropriate groups and the findings would guide the design or revision of course offerings. (MB)
