The Semester for Self-Directed Study: Confluent Education at the Community College Level.
Mittler, Mary; And Others
The need at the community college level for the development of new styles or modes of education that are consistent with the uniqueness of the individual student and will help him realize his human potential is discussed. Such styles or modes are based upon an educational theory called confluent education. The Semester for Self-Directed Study is a mode of education that allows for a learning environment that meets the cognitive as well as affective need of students who will not or cannot cope with the more traditional modes of learning. The Semester for Self-Directed Study was developed, proposed, and instituted at Oakton Community College during the 1971-72 academic year. The proposal upon which this program was based is provided, including the methodology (faculty recruitment and selection, curriculum--prerequisites and transferability, role of the student development personnel, student recruiting and selection, registration, contract procedure, organization and management, field study, facilities, and accountability), and collection and treatment of data. Literature related to the problem is referenced and discussed. An appendix provides a glossary of terms used most frequently in the text. The report concludes with a lengthy bibliography. (DB)
