Teaching the Disadvantaged in Engineering.
Simmons, Ron; And Others
A study was conducted to assess teaching in minority engineering programs, based on 38 engineering institutions with special programs for disadvantaged minorities. The institutions were investigated with respect to preferences, characteristics, and preparation of teachers and the availability of faculty development for special program teachers. The programs include developmental, academic support, tutoring, and compensatory education. Special programs function at the precollege and undergraduate levels. Information is presented on program effectiveness, program structure, review sessions, academic procedures, and counseling. The survey obtained information on the kinds of teachers selected for the special programs and their teaching preferences. Teaching strategies preferred by special program teachers and correlations between special teaching methods and student retention and student academic success are discussed. Recommendations are offered based on survey findings. (SW)
