Selected Papers from Northern Illinois University Community College Conferences, 1969-1970.
Northern Illinois Univ., De Kalb. Community Coll. Services.
This collection of selected papers covers a variety of community-junior college topics. Evaluating the instructional staff is the first one examined. Aspects such as evaluation criteria, purposes, and obstacles; the role of effective recruitment; the need for in-service training; and student and administrative participation are covered. Included are sample forms used in several junior colleges to evaluate faculty members, division chairmen, deans of instruction, and deans of students. Faculty employment guidelines for one junior college are also provided. Next, the role of the academic dean is considered, particularly as it affects faculty growth and excellence, curriculum development, and personnel administration. The roles of various members of the community-junior college staff in curriculum development are then considered, in conjunction with a discussion of the place of objectives, evaluation, curriculum meetings, and resource agencies outside the specific institution. Next, the historical development and methods of incorporating the general education requirement into a school's curriculum are surveyed, followed by a suggestion for more economical operation of student data processing laboratories through use of a full-time lab supervisor. The concluding papers deal with the increasingly diverse demands confronting schools, staff, and students, and with current trends in community-junior college public relations. (JO)
