Stark, Joan S.; And Others
This document is a guide for use in self-study by groups of college faculty using the Course Planning Exploration (CPE) survey. The CPE is designed to uncover approaches to course planning and thereby stimulate discussion, collegial learning, and development among faculty members. Section I describes the CPE including the history of its development, the contextual filters model of course planning, and the uses of the CPE for program self-study. Section II covers how to use the CPE, an overview, the parts of the survey, scoring, and reporting and discussing the results. Section III explores how to use the CPE for research including a discussion of cautions and instrument limitations. Appendixes contain a listing of the steps taken in the development of the CPE, a copy of the survey itself, and a data code book. An attachment describes how to obtain the CPE and the user's manual. Eight references are included. (JB)
