The study which forms the basis of this bulletin is an outgrowth of a conference held by the Office of Education in Washington, D.C., May 20 and 21, 1957. It reports the findings of a survey made to determine the extent to which certain practices relating to faculty or instructional techniques are being followed in institutions of higher education and, more especially the extent to which they are being employed because of faculty shortages. Chapters address: (1) The problem: faculty shortage; (2) Institutional use of specified practices; (3) Comments and observations by the respondents; and (4) Summary. It is hoped that, by throwing additional light on current practices, the findings of this report will contribute to a better understanding of the present status of higher education in our country and the implications for the future. The information presented should be of interest to educators generally and others concerned with higher education. Appended is the questionnaire used in the survey. (Contains 16 footnotes and 11 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
