The Student Centered Education Project: Student Initiative in the Behavior Analysis Experimental Education Project.
Malott, Richard W.; And Others
The Student Centered Education Project is an experimental college program run by and for psychology students at Western Michigan University. The project was initiated in the fall of 1969 by faculty of various departments within the university, with the aim of developing a more effective learning environment for the students. The faculty initially carried the major responsibility for operating and refining the program. Recently, however, students began taking a more active interest in the operation of the project until today, students not only run the project, but provide the major force for innovative change. The faculty have assumed the role of consultants, allowing students to carry the responsibility for further development and improvement of the program. Undergraduate student researchers have been hard at work developing new methods of remediation, small group seminars, procedures for monitoring staff performance, a supportive social environment for serious students, and other components of a comprehensive educational program. we have found that students, when provided with proper training and given the opportunity, are very capable of operating and continually improving an innovative educational program.
