University of Wisconsin-Madison and Open Education. A Report to the UW-Madison University Committee by a Special Faculty Committee on University Outreach Functions.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison.
This document supplies a detailed rationale for four principal recommendations: (1) that the campus revise, adapt, or develop selected programs in keeping with open-education patterns, thereby making educational opportunities more readily available to significant constituencies not presently being served; (2) that campus departments schedule more of their regular on-campus credit courses and programs at nontraditional hours to better serve a growing metropolitan-type citizenry with clear need for lifelong learning opportunities; (3) that campus departments reaffirm their responsibility for all credit-bearing instruction, develop and offer appropriate instruction off-campus, and draw on Extension for necessary academic-support services and coordination; and (4) that the campus reaffirm its traditional commitment to broad noncredit educational outreach and develop those faculty policies and administrative arrangements that will assure a close relationship among university teaching, research, and outreach in the interests of effective public service of high quality.
