Report on the National Science Foundation Workshop on Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Education in Two-Year Colleges (Washington, DC, October 31-November 1, 1988).
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Directorate for Science and Engineering Education.
Two-year colleges are often overlooked in undergraduate education even though they are responsible for educating 37 percent of all college students and over half of the minorities in higher education. In the fall of 1988, the Office of Undergraduate Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Education (USEME) convened a 2-day conference to discuss the improvement of undergraduate education at the two-year college level. This report includes a brief introduction to the issue, eight recommendations for the improvement of introductory science and mathematics education at the two-year college level, and a list of workshop participants.
