Proceedings: The Junior College Conference (3rd, Arizona State University, April 15-16, 1971).
Bogart, Quentin, Ed.
The proceedings of this conference focus on junior college teaching and issues concerning teacher characteristics, future manpower needs, and effective teacher training. In addition to group discussion summaries, the speeches included are "Forecasts of Instructional Personnel Needs,""The Doctor of Arts Degree,""Community-Junior College Teachers," and "The Competent Community-Junior College Teacher." Also presented is a listing of characteristics of the effective teacher, a model teacher training program, qualities of good teaching, and duties and responsibilities of instructors. Some conclusions were: (1) a junior college teacher training program requires the prospective teacher to mold his educational philosophy in terms of student and community needs; (2) such a program demands a new approach to the selection of candidates and attention to the qualifications of those doing the training; (3) a short term workshop should help in meeting the needs of both current and potential junior college teachers; and (4) a graduate degree training program should provide in-depth training experience for both prospective and practicing teachers.
