The Human Development Course in the Community Junior College: Towards a Model.
Ludwig, Terry Gerald
In order to develop a model human development course for the community college, attitudinal and factual information was obtained from 120 practitioners at colleges identified as having operational human development instruction programs. The questionnaire allowed the group to react to a series of 86 items representative of HD courses' characteristics, objectives, practices, and evaluation techniques in terms of the items' practicality and desirability. First, HD course characteristics showing the greatest desirability were "student's experience utilized as course content,""class size kept small," and "academic credit given for the course." Secondly, objectives showing the greatest desirability were "to encourage personal growth and development,""to help the student plan personal change using strengths and abilities," and "to create a supportive environment where the student may learn skills in communicating with others." Thirdly, practices demonstrating greatest desirability were group processes used "to build trust,""to increase self-insight," and "to generate feedback." Fourthly, evaluation techniques showing greatest desirability were "inservice workshop training for course facilitators,""group participation," and "self-reports" to judge the impact of the course.
