Student Development in the Classroom: The Tandem Approach.
Helfgot, Steven R.; And Others
Much has been written lately about the role of the Student Development Specialist in the classroom, most of it focusing on his role as consultant or process facilitator. This material focuses on the Student Development Specialist working as classroom teacher "in tandem" with another instructor from another discipline. The approach is simple. In many community colleges Student Development Specialists are offering group experiences for credit, usually in the Psychology discipline. In a "tandem" the Student Development Specialist teaching the group experience and another instructor teaching in another discipline build two interlocking courses. Both instructors teach in both; the same students are registered in both; the classes are taught in back-to-back time slots i.e. in tandem. Thus, the connection between disciplines is made available for students to grasp, helping them to better integrate the totality of their educational experience. (Author)
