Development and Experiment in College Teaching, No. 7.
Committee on Institutional Cooperation.
This report comprises a collection of summaries of exploratory efforts by college professors at the Committee on Institutional Cooperation member institutions to develop new and better ways of teaching. Usually these are local experiments aimed at improving the conditions for learning in a specific subject-matter area, but many of the procedures can easily be generalized for application in other departments, or they may stimulate the search for fresh alternatives. The subject-matter areas are: agronomy, animal science, counseling, engineering, home economics, industrial management, medicine, journalism, language, mathematics, music, philosophy, and psychology. University-wide activities summaries fall into the categories of administration and academic facilities, interdisciplinary program, measurement and evaluation, and teaching assistants. Cumulative indexes by subject matter and category are included. (HS)
