Implementation of a Faculty Team-Based Model for Art History Course Development. Final Project Report.
Forrester, Thomas; And Others
The final report of a college art faculty-based project to meet the needs of large numbers of students is presented. Objectives of the project were to develop a variety of courses using various teaching methods and without increasing faculty, to enable faculty to handle effectively large numbers of students, and to increase faculty members' course development skills. The document is presented in seven sections. The first two sections discuss the background and planning phase of the project. Prior to the project, course selection in art history was narrow, large classes were taught by lecture, and examinations were objective and machine graded. The planning phase involved weekly meetings of team members to present plans for new course content. Sections three and four focus on the implementation process which included writing syllabi, selecting films, outlining daily lessons, producing television programs and slides, and devising evaluation forms. Section five discusses methods used to evaluate the project and concludes that the original objectives of the program are being met. The final two sections briefly present plans for course maintenance and a chart summary of objectives and their current status. The appendix, which comprises the major portion of the document, contains student advising materials; syllabi for Contemporary Art, Man and His Symbols, History of Women Artists, History of Crafts, Philosophy in Art, 20th Century Art, Asian Art, History of Art Criticism, and History of Design; evaluation sheets; and quizzes.
