A Model for a Human Potential Seminar in a Small, Private Junior College.
Silver, Jane H.
Based on the academic improvement of a sample group of students who participated in a loosely structured human potential seminar, a syllabus was prepared for future seminars at North Greenville College, a small, private, church-related community college in South Carolina. The following thematic objectives were used for the course: learning to work in groups; self-understanding and personal goal setting; personal values clarification; planning for the world of work; development of listening, communication, and study skills; and long-term goal setting. Due to limited staff resources, 15 students was the suggested size for the 15-week, three hours per week seminar. The Brown-Holtzman Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes, the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale, and the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory were used to provide feedback on students' self-understanding and interests, and to evaluate their study habits. A reading list was developed, audio-visual materials suggested, and an evaluation form compiled. As an attempt to encourage seminar participants to communicate with the facilitator in a personal manner, a journal system was devised. A literature review and bibliography are included, and an appendix contains the class schedule of topics, organization of the student journal, a list of suggested student readings, and a course evaluation form.
