Curriculum Research and Development at a New Senior University.
Gallagher, James Joseph
In July 1969, Governors State University was created by an act of the legislature of the State of Illinois and, since then, has become operational. This paper is a report on curricular research and development at Governors State University, with a discussion of special emphasis factors and processes which have influenced work in the area of curricular research and development. The information presented focuses on the College of Environmental and Applied Sciences which has a program organized on interdisciplinary, problem-focused lines and which includes concentration at the baccalaureate and masters levels in science, science teaching, and health science. Instruction is performance-based and criterion-referenced. The student population includes transfer students from a wide range of community colleges and four year institutions and involves the broad spectrum of people found in metropolitan areas, especially from low-middle income and minority families.
