Changing Tasks and Roles in Higher Education. A Total Institutional Project at Austin College.
Austin Coll., Sherman, TX.
From 1972 through 1975 Austin College conducted a Total Institutional Project that dealt with the fundamental issue of educational roles. The fundamental nature of the changes sought was for students to become more self-directed in their learning, for faculty to become more skilled in facilitating the learning and maturation of students, and for the college to become more capable of sustaining institutional self-renewal on a long-term, continuing basis. A redistribution of educational responsibilities was to come about in the implementation of IDEAS, a program unified around the concepts of individualization, the changing nature of the educational task, and adaptability for the developing needs of the future. This project report discusses the program impact on the student, the faculty, and the college. Strategies used and insights gained are also discussed. (Author/KE)
