Update on Research and Leadership, v13 n1-2 Fall 2001-Spr 2002
This issue of On Research and Leadership Update (v13 n1) focuses on the concerns surrounding dual enrollment and dual credit. "Dual Enrollment Programs: Assessing the American Dream," by Katherine Boswell, addresses the problems inherent in development of these programs when institutions fail to collaborate with one another in an effective way. Boswell makes suggestions for state policy implementation regarding dual and concurrent enrollment. "Articulation: A Primer on Partnerships," by Rob Kerr, defines three key terms: basic articulation, articulated credit, and dual credit, in an effort to minimize the confusion over articulation that rests in terminology. "Dual-Credit Partnerships," by Robert Mees and Julia Schroeder, gives an overview of the dual credit arrangements John A. Logan College (Illinois) has developed with 11 high schools in its district. "Dual-Credit: Delivery Options for Secondary Students," by Hans Andrews and Jackie Davis, discusses the Olney Central College (Illinois) dual-credit options being offered to seven of its district high schools. "Helping High School Students to 'Think College,'" by Linda Uzureau, describes the Prairie State College (Illinois) program, which offers tuition-free career and technical programs in local high schools. Finally, "West Virginia's Seamless Curriculum Initiative," by Kathy D'Antoni, discusses how the initiative is affecting curriculum and testing in secondary and postsecondary schools. The second part (v13 n2) includes the following articles: "Changing Credentials in Community Colleges: An Interview with David Pierce,""The Community College Baccalaureate Degree: A New Paradigm," by Kenneth P. Walker, "Community College Roles in Teacher Preparation," by James E. Bartlett, II, "Certificates Up and Down the Ladder: Get a Skill, Get a Job," by Susan McRae, and "The Challenges of Changing Credentials," a book review by Catherine Wilhelms.
