Humanizing Education in the Junior College.
Menefee, Selden, Ed.; Smith, D. Brent, Ed.
This report of the 1970 American Association of Junior Colleges regional conference proceedings deals with five subjects. The first is "Innovative Programs at Florissant Valley Community College." The innovative programs have generally been in audiovisual and computer-assisted instruction with the goal of preparing teachers to know what instructional options are available and how they may be used. The second topic, "Humanizing Education," offers a systematic approach to instruction for the purpose of increasing the aspirations, motivations, and self-concept of students and teachers. The third topic, "The Implications of Student Personnel Programs for Effective Instruction," offers eight suggestions for what student personnel workers can do to take leadership on the college campus. The fourth topic, "General Education in Occupational Programs," discusses the importance of students being prepared to cope with the dynamics of both modern society and the work world. In the final topic, "A Systematic Approach to General Education for Career Students," a systems model and approach are given. A systems approach produces a carefully defined set of behavioral objectives and educational materials, and gives a set of validated learning modules to be used to lead students to the achievement of general education objectives.
