Innovation in Undergraduate Teaching; and the Study of Asian and African Societies and Traditions: Final Report.
Morehouse, Ward; Ehrman, Edith
Concerned that many important innovations in undergraduate education are apparently having little impact on the international dimensions of American education, the Council for Intercultural Studies and Programs, with support from the Institute of International Studies, sought to define more precisely the nature of the problem and to develop some preliminary and exploratory approaches to this complex, open-ended educational issue. The final report summarizes the goals, methodology, results and conclusions of the project. The fulfillment of the first project objective was realized in the publication of a guide to innovative approaches in undergraduate education and of two model units, identifying innovative approaches used in undergraduate study of Asian and African societies. The second project objective, to encourage more interest in imaginative approaches to the study of the Third World and to develop more linkages between those involved in undergraduate educational innovation and those concerned with international aspects of undergraduate curriculum, was met by a series of conferences which explored different aspects of innovation in undergraduate education. The major project publication is ED 076 494. (Author/KSM)
