Innovations in Undergraduate Education: Selected Institutional Profiles and Thoughts About Experimentalism.
Berte, Neal R., Ed.
In January 1972, The University of Alabama held a 4-day invitational conference to bring together the leaders of those institutions that offer innovative and experimental programs. Specifically, the purposes of the conference were: (1) to share critical reports from each participant about each of their programs; (2) to make recommendations regarding those experimental efforts that appear to be successful and how they could be extended; (3) to encourage experimentation not yet underway; and (4) to compile, publish and distribute a report about the conference so that those not in attendance could benefit from this pooling of information and recommendations. The bulk of this publication consists of the institutional profiles developed by each of the 12 participants. The 3 appendices present the guidelines followed by the participants in writing the institutional reports, an evaluation of the conference, and a roster of the participants. (HS)
