Experimenting Community: A New Curriculum for Human Service Professionals
Butler, Harry; Bilorusky, John
Education and Urban Society, 7, 2, 117-140, Feb 75
Four curricular models are contrasted: the performance model (which is exemplified by most college curricula), closed and open contrast models, and the "experimenting community" in which learning experiences emerge from a process of interaction. This latter approach is elaborated upon in terms of its emphasis on nurturing improvisational learning, flexibility in developing community involvement activities, and its implications for integrating content and process for human service workers.
