Learning in Transit at Mountain Empire Community College.
Vaughan, George B.
This proposed program at Mountain Empire Community College (MECC, Virginia) is designed to teach credit courses to students while they are traveling to and from college. About 86% of the potential student population at MECC will spend from one to over three hours a day commuting. Six adequately equipped buses would facilitate a productive use of this time by offering individualized instruction in transit. It would decrease transportation cost and offer educational and cultural opportunities to more people. Stable classrooms for those who cannot travel, mobile counseling vans, and trips to concerts and other cultural offerings are other services these buses would provide. Related topics discussed are the college's stance on instruction and instructional accountability, evaluation of the program, preparation of the instructors to mobilize learning, "block" scheduling, student obligations, and the reasons MECC was chosen for the project.
