A Guide to Educational Programs in Noncollegiate Organizations. 1978 Supplement.
Aiken, Carol, Ed.
Intended to be used in conjunction with the 1977 edition, this 1978 supplement contains descriptions and college credit recommendations for approximately 320 courses offered on the postsecondary level by thirty-eight noncollegiate organizations. An introductory section provides (1) background on the Program on Noncollegiate Sponsored Instruction, and its 1976 follow-up study to assess its impact in New York state, (2) a description of the review process, (3) question-and-answer sections for students and college administrators and faculty, and (4) directions for using the supplement. Section I describes and evaluates courses which have been reviewed since the publication of the 1977 Guide. Introductory paragraphs are generally limited to organizations whose courses have not been previously included. Section II focuses on courses conducted by organizations under the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA). Section III contains modifications of previously evaluated courses which resulted from the Program's regular re-review process. All material about the modified course is printed here so that it is not necessary to consult the 1977 Guide. Each course description in the three sections consists of the following information: location, length, dates, objective, instruction, and credit recommendation. A course index is also included, arranged by organization name. (ELG)
