The Cleveland State University and Cuyahoga Community College 1970-1971 Instructor-Counselor Program. Director's Evaluation Report.
Cleveland State Univ., OH. Coll. of Education.; Cuyahoga Community Coll., Cleveland, OH.
The 40-week Instructor-Counselor program, jointly sponsored by Cleveland State University College of Education and Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, Ohio, was designed to prepare instructor-tutor-counselors for work with underachieving/disadvantaged first- and second-year college students. The objectives of the program focused on the knowledge of a major field of study, the characteristics of the disadvantaged underachiever, instructional theory, and individualized approaches to learning. Thirty-four subjects participated in regular, special, and elective course work; three internship experiences; mini-counseling laboratories; final projects; individual student projects; and individual advising sessions. Evaluation of the program centered on academic and internship performance, conferences at the beginning and end of each semester, participant conferences, mini-laboratory and final project performance, and staff and administration feedback. Evaluation data confirmed the success of the program in relation to the establishment of the instructor-counselor-tutor concept, the use of the systems approach in developing the program, individualized learning techniques, and knowledge about the underachieving college student. (An 18-part appendix presents evaluation forms, brochures, schedules, seminar syllabus, and the Distinguished Achievement Award Commendation.) (BRB)
