An Evaluative Study of the University of California, Irvine/Golden West College Cooperative Science Improvement Project.
Rosen, Marvin J.; Cohen, Arthur M.
This document contains a report of the University of California, Irvine, and Golden West College Cooperative Science Improvement Project (UCI/GWC Project) which was designed to address two major problems: (1) the difficulty faced by community college biology teachers in keeping pace with developments in their field and (2) the problem of conveying the content and excitement of biology in cases where traditional methods are inadequate. Two consecutive summer workshops, funded by the National Science Foundation, served to bring together subject matter specialists, instructional methods specialists, and community college biology teachers. Twenty-eight biology teachers representing 23 California community colleges were trained in recent advances in biology and in techniques for designing individualized, multi-media instruction for large numbers of students. Evaluation of the processes and impacts of the project was undertaken during the second summer workshop. The findings from this evaluation effort constitute the major portion of this report. (PEB)
