"Project Outreach," Final Report, December 31, 1979.
Latzer, Robert M.
Fall 1979 activities for Project Outreach, a faculty development program at Jersey City State College, are described. Problems involved in carrying out these activities, a statement of expenditures and balances, and a set of recommendations are covered. Four areas of activity planned at the college were: a second series of study skills seminars, a reading/writing exploratory blend, course monitoring, and feedback/sharing sessions. Study skills seminars were not enacted in the fall semester and course monitoring was limited. The reading/writing effort operated successfully in the freshman block program, and two types of feedback/sharing sessions were conducted. One type was for participating faculty, and a second type was for faculty not yet involved in this kind of work. Recommendations are offered for improving faculty involvement in curriculum reform. Samples of course material in the following areas are appended: sociology of the family, colonial America, introduction to philosophy, basic concepts of science, and contemporary art. A report of the mathematics component of Project Outreach and the preliminary report to the Ford Foundation on the consortium project are also appended. (SW)
