The Improvement of Instruction in Developing Junior Colleges.
Rogers, Ida Long
This monograph describes Freed-Hardeman College's effort to improve instruction through a cooperative project with the faculty of George Peabody College for Teachers. The report is intended to be useful to other developing colleges. The faculty development project, mostly funded under the Title III Higher Education Act of 1965, consisted of summer and extended study leaves, faculty travel to professional meetings, interinstitutional visits by faculty members of the two institutions, and consultation by visiting scholars and specialists. The report concentrates on the 1969-70 program. In an effort to organize the report around concerns common to developing colleges in general, visiting scholars' recommendations are grouped under the topics of purpose, faculty development, student-faculty relations, and instructional methods. Recommendations included an emphasis on education rather than training and more active participation by the learner, which requires a new and more active role for the professor. Appendix A provides a list of institutional coordinators, visiting scholars, and faculty participants. Appendix B is an annotated bibliography about teaching in the junior college. (KM)
