University Without Walls: Seminar in Process Education.
Eldred, Marilou
Students at the University Without Walls (UWW) of the University of Minnesota design their own program by writing a Long Term Degree Plan to describe how they plan to demonstrate their competence in each of UWW's seven graduation criteria. Because students have experienced difficulty in writing the plan, a seminar in process education was developed to help students develop skills in question-asking, reflecting, and synthesizing for the purpose of integrating their academic education with their experiential education into a bachelor's degree program. A pilot test of the seminar during the fall quarter used an experimental group of 12 persons (who took the seminar) and a control group of 17 persons (who did not). The subjects were invited to participate, and both groups were given the same pretests and posttests. At the end of the seminar, both groups wrote a rough draft of their Long Term Degree Plan. Both groups received similar scores that were relatively high. It was determined, however, that in general, students in the control group were older, longer established in their careers, and had more education than those in the experimental group. Student evaluations of the seminar indicated that it was useful for those who participated. (LSM)
