Attracting Philosophy Students--1.
Coole, Walter A., Ed.
This is the first in a series of occasional papers designed as a vehicle for the collection and dissemination of ideas for increasing philosophy course enrollments in two-year colleges. A project of the Subcommittee on Attracting Philosophy Students of the American Philosophical Association's Committee on Teaching Philosophy in Two-Year Colleges, the series provides brief descriptions of student recruitment ideas, projects, and methods for adaptation and utilization by philosophy departments and instructors. Items included in the series are presented in nine categories: Germinal Ideas, Strategies, Procedures, Projects, Graphics, Scripts, Resources, Miscellaneous, and Critiques. Among the items included in this first issue are suggestions for publicity handbooks, news releases, conducting radio interviews, project planning techniques, posters, and personal appearance speeches. Directions for users of the materials and for potential contributors to the series are given in the introduction and in the various sections. Also included in the last section of the document is a call for contributions to a special collection of radio-TV plugs celebrating birthdays of modern philosophers. (BB)
