Development of a College Conducted Faculty Pre-Service Program, 1969-1972. Final Report.
Burlington County Coll., Pemberton, NJ.
The development of a pre-service training program over a three-year period for faculty at Burlington County College, New Jersey is discussed. Burlington County College, which began operation in the Fall of 1969, emphasizes various modes of instruction, with the long-range goal of facilitating individualized instruction. Summaries of six revisions made to the pre-service program are presented. The objectives, procedures, and evaluations of the 1969, 70, and 71 programs are provided, and a field test made at Ocean County College is described. Following the field test, final revision was made of the pre-service program. The program not only influenced basic attitudes, but provided new faculty with knowledge and skills needed. The major contributions of the project were as follows: (1) a collection of validated learning objectives for a faculty pre-service program, sequenced in a rational fashion, and keyed to materials available to any institution; (2) some very useful instruments--a validated pre-service attitude questionnaire; a validated quiz on those aspects essential to understanding the students in the community college; an annotated bibliography on pre-service and in-service training of community college faculty; and a checklist of items to send to new faculty members prior to their arrival on campus; and (3) a chronological record of the program development. Appendixes provide 1969, 1970, 1971 Pre-Service Program Outlines; Final Version of Burlington County College Pre-Service Program; Checklist of Materials Sent to New Faculty Prior to Arriving on Campus; Evaluation Summaries for 1969, 1970, 1971 Pre-Service Programs; Evaluation Summary of Field Test; and Annotated Bibliography.
