Theodossin, Ernest, Ed.
This report describes the physical and educational transformation of South East Essex College of Arts and Technology in England. It focuses on how the institution's two seedy, dilapidated council buildings from the 1940s have been renovated and remodeled in pursuit of a modern aesthetic work environment for students, faculty, and staff. The report discusses the factors affecting change and modernization among further education colleges in general and South East Essex in particular. A report from the college's principal, Tony Pitcher, "Building Blocks To Transform Learning," includes discussion on early impressions and ideas, culture change and physical change, problems, the American community college example, tackling the traditional, growth and innovation, library to learning centers, information technology (IT) centers, security consistency and synergy, and a variety of learning methods. The report also discusses student, faculty, and administrator attitudes toward the changes. (MDM)
