Library Workshop on "Reading:" The Academic Librarian and the Generic Book--Alternatives to the Generic Book.
Schleifer, Harold B.
In order to meet the needs of the heterogeneous student body resulting from an open admissions policy, an audiotutorial system is recommended for the City University of New York. The proposal would combine the efforts of the three distinct units offering instruction on each campus: (1) traditional academic departments, (2) a remedial academic skills department, and (3) a library. Academic instructors would tape their lectures without regard to any deficiencies in comprehension among their students. The tapes would then be annotated by academic skills personnel, adding explanatory material and suggestions for note taking. After review by the original lecturer, the annotated tapes would be placed on reserve in the library. Among the expected advantages of this system are: low cost, opportunities for individualized learning, strict adherence to the principle of granting college credit only for college work, and increased student retention of class material. A 33-item bibliography supplements the text. (PF)
