Evaluating the Division Chairmen Leadership Conference of 1970.
Brightman, Richard W.
Thirty-three division chairmen from community colleges across the United States participated in an August 1970 conference whose purpose was to serve specific personal and interpersonal, group, and instructional systems objectives and to prepare specific guidelines for leadership in improvement of curricula and instruction in community colleges. The conference, sponsored by the League for Innovation, proved to be a successful pilot project. The topics of the conference were: (1) emerging role of the division chairman as an educational leader; (2) his relations with faculty, administration, and students; (3) innovation for improved instruction; (4) group experience; (5) effect of administrative problems on teachers; and (6) development of insight and skill in divisional management. Evaluation of the conference was made by: (1) tabulation and narration, which appear in the conference syllabus (not included in this report); and (2) a survey conducted after one academic year to see if the participants perceived changes in their own leadership ability as a result of attending the conference.
