Beyond the Carnegie Commission: A Policy Study Guide to Space/Time/Credit-Preference Higher Learning.
This document presents a case and guide for a "Space/Time-Preference" (S/T-P) higher learning situation in which educational programs, plans, and proposals seek to promote learning beyond campus classrooms, while many of them are even flexible as to when and how a student learns. The purpose of the guide is to focus on the long-range problems and possibilities associated with the development of S/T-P higher learning, while raising fundamental questions for further investigation. The overlapping areas of concern deal with noncredited learning, the organizational structure or the new institutions and programs, the new technologies that will greatly enhance the possibilities for S/T-P learning, the variation in present S/T-P programs, institutional accreditation, equity, personnel, and relationships with the lower system. To summarize these problems and possibilities, 6 possible systems are sketched: the Extended Campus System, the Extended Credit System, the Variegated Extended Credit System, the Learner-Centered System, the Diminished Campus, and the Empty Campus. Also included in the document are an exploration of external degree programs, and a selected annotated bibliography on higher education planning. (Author/HS)
