Dateline '79: Heretical Concepts for the Community College.
Cohen, Arthur M.
In this book, a direction is proposed for the community/junior college whereby the college may better serve its students and community by employing current knowledge of effective instruction. Because the junior college takes pride in being a "teaching institution," the text deals particularly with the history and current status of curriculum and instruction. The book is divided into four sections. Part 1 presents a paradigmatic picture of the community college as it might look in 1979, offering a model of a "self-renewing institution" with a flexible curriculum built on a firm instructional base. Part 2 traces the history of curricular and instructional practices in junior colleges and attempts to address issues related to the continuing interest in instructional innovation, and calls for curricular experimentation. Part 3 relates the model college of 1979 to its current counterpart, suggesting and extending arguments for making the transition. Part 4 examines a defined-outcomes approach to teaching and learning. (EJV)
