Graduate Education and Community Colleges: Cooperative Approaches to Community College Staff Development. Technical Report No. 5.
Martorana, S. V., Ed.; And Others
In order to assess the need to improve graduate programs for prospective and present community college teachers, the National Board on Graduate Education sponsored an invitational conference in November, 1974. Conference participants were drawn from each of three sectors: community colleges, graduate schools of arts and sciences, and university schools of education. The conference was organized around 11 commissioned papers which make up the bulk of this volume. Participants addressed the issues raised in these papers during conference sessions, which grouped the papers according to: (1) current trends within community colleges that have created the concern for staff development; (2) responses to staff development needs, including responses in "non-traditional" settings; and (3) perspectives of graduate faculty, deans, and schools of education. Although conference participants agreed that improved university programs for community college staff development are needed, the practical questions of how to develop, administer, and finance such programs were left open. It is clear, however, that problems of staff development will require cooperative approaches involving both the university and the community college. The necessary resources for successful programs are present in the two institutions, not in either one alone. (NHM)
