Faculty Development Program on Teaching Adults.
Cooper, John D., Comp.
In response to a growing concern over how adult students' needs can be met effectively, Lansing Community College has produced two videotapes and accompanying materials for use with faculty development programs. These 3/4 inch color videocassettes are designed to be used in a workshop setting as well as on a cable or closed television system for individual or group viewing. The first tape, a 30 minute introduction, discusses--through a series of interviews--how one teaches adults, while the second tape presents a theory of adult learning advanced by Malcolm Knowles. This document contains the following materials that accompany the tapes: an outline and script of the videotapes, written materials for individual and group viewing, transparencies, handouts, a glossary of selected terms, and a bibliography. The written materials for individuals and groups have been designed to stimulate thinking by participants prior to viewing the programs, to give some focus to discussion afterward, and to attempt to establish some commitment to adopt alternative approaches in the classroom after having worked through the program. The bibliography offers additional sources for participants who want more information. A glossary, outlines of the videotape content, and the scripts of the two videotapes are also appended. (KC)
