Developing a Model for a Co-disciplinary Human Development Course at a Community College.
Cias, Gerald W.
A survey of the literature and three survey instruments were used in designing and assessing a human development course at Sacramento City College (California). The course involves at least two different instructional divisions, corresponds to the personal characteristics of the student body, and includes members of both the counseling staff and teaching faculty as co-facilitators. To identify the characteristics of the student body, the Omnibus Personality Index was administered to a representative sample (four percent) of 514 students. Then, a local panel of faculty, counselors, students, and administrators was organized and surveyed to ascertain the desirability of various human development course components, objectives, and implementation strategies which have been utilized at other community colleges. These two surveys facilitated the development of a model co-disciplinary human development course entitled "Living and Working in Sacramento." This model course was evaluated by surveying a national panel of seven experts identified through a review of the literature, and on the basis of their evaluation a second model course was developed, entitled "You and Your Life in Sacramento." A complete course description, including suggested activities for seven modules, is presented here, and the survey instruments are appended. (NHM)
