The Student Personnel Worker as Teacher: Fostering Moral Devlopment in College Women.
Straub, Cynthia A.; Rodgers, Robert F.
The concepts of deliberate psychological education are utilized, together with use of the student personnel worker as a developmental instructor, to implement the developmental aims of higher education. A project is described involving the design, implementation, and evaluation of an interdisciplinary English-psychology course in which student personnel workers were the curriculum designers and instructors. It was hypothesized that students would move toward higher stages on Kohlberg's cognitive theory of moral development, and that self-reported attitudes toward women and women's issues would progress toward less traditional stances. Results revealed that students were able to learn and master subject matter, confront identity issues, and grow in cognitive moral reasoning. (KA)
