Task Force on Off-Campus Instructional Programs. Report. Academic Programs Publication Series Number 11.
Florida Univ., Gainesville. Inst. of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
A study was conducted of off-campus instructional programs offered by the College of Agriculture of the University of Florida to describe the programs being conducted, the resources needed, the policies for teaching courses at community colleges, and the potential for using Ag Sat and other remote delivery systems for off-campus teaching. Data were gathered by a task force through mail and direct contact with students, faculty, and administrators. Results were organized in three areas: delivery systems for off-campus instruction, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) off-campus teaching programs, and other off-campus instructional programs. Programs in each area were described as they are operating now, and recommendations for improving them were made. (Appendixes to the report include a model 2 + 2 articulation agreement, a model 2 + 2 scholarship agreement and criteria, and a model agreement between community colleges and the IFAS for using faculty to teach courses.)
