[Responses by Members of Committee C on College and University Teaching, Research, and Publication, American Association of University Professors, to the National Commission on Excellence in Education.]
Gruender, C. David; And Others
Views of three committee members of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) are presented in response to questions posed by the National Commission on Excellence in Education. The opinions of these members of Committee C on College and University Teaching, Research, and Publication are individual positions, rather than those of the AAUP. The following questions are considered: What does AAUP suggest to improve the preparation and continued development of college teachers as teachers? What are the principle disincentives and barriers to the improvement of college teaching? How does one realistically and practically remove the barriers and/or mitigate the disincentives? If American education is a continuum and if communication and interaction along that continuum have been lacking, what can colleges do to encourage faculty to take more active roles in outreach and cooperative academic activities, particularly with respect to middle schools and high schools? Are there any programs or subjects currently being taught either equally well or better in other kinds of institutions? Which institution is the proper provider of these subjects? Are there any subjects currently being taught in America's high schools that are better left to colleges? (SW)
