Proceedings: Annual Junior College Conference (2nd, Arizona State University, April 26, 1969).
Bridgman, Donald, Ed.
This conference report focuses on improving instruction and guidance in the junior college. Three main speeches are presented: (1) "Improving Instruction Through Setting of Behavioral Objectives," (2) "Faculty Development for the Improvement of Instruction and Guidance," and (3) "Implications for Student Personnel Programs From What We Know About Junior College Students." Some of the conclusions include: (1) instruction can be improved by establishing measurable behavioral objectives, realizing that these objectives need to be developed as the course evolves; (2) faculty performance evaluation should be viewed in terms of student learning and achieved objectives as determined by faculty members and administrators; and (3) student development specialists are needed to facilitate the behavioral development of individuals and small groups in the total environment. Also, junior college students are discussed in terms of academic and personal characteristics, resistance to testing, socio-economic background, finances, values, self-concept and personality, educational aspirations, third world students, and sense of community.
