Proceedings: Learning and the Learners. The Second Annual Tennessee Symposium on Higher Education.
Hollis, Coy, Ed.; And Others
Three concerns were the focusing points for the conference: (1) the impact the continuing change in the student population has on the faculty; (2) the implications for higher education and society in general with respect to increasing demands for the credentialing of professional competency; and (3) the ways in which higher education can respond to a wide diversity of needs and at the same time maintain academic quality. Addresses touched on the topics of new learners and their impact on education (Patricia K. Cross); professional competency and societal credentialing (Cyril O. Houle); diversity of response and maintenance of quality in higher education (Morris T. Keeton); issues and answers, a panel discussion; and perspectives (John Richardson and Hilton Smith). (MSE)
