Community College Curricula: Circa 1990. An Anthology.
Fuller, Jack W.
This anthology deals with the subject of community college curricula, suggesting what is and should be the direction of the community college curricula for the 1990's. Part 1 cites sources which attempt to provide a definition of the community college curriculum; looks at the functions, goals and missions of the community college, and the standards, degrees, and certificates in which these functions and goals are manifested; considers the current and future state of the curriculum in a social context; and describes a basic model of the procedural process for curriculum development in the two-year college. Part 2 focuses on the changing nature of the community college in relation to lifelong learning, the adult learner, community services and continuing education, and the small/rural community college. Finally, part 3 explores future directions for the curriculum, looking at the use of educational technologies in the development of comprehensive learning assistance centers; the involvement of community colleges in high technology training; the continuing value of individualized, self-paced instruction; and the effects of students and faculty on the curriculum.
