Education and the World of Work. The Network Curriculum Round Table Final Report.
Eckstein, Max A.; Seley, John E.
Recommendations for improving the college curriculum and the quality of the work force are presented in this report of the Network Curriculum Round Table, a Queens College project involving representatives of business, government, and education. Following a brief statement of the project's purpose and an anecdotal account of its activities, the reports of four special task forces are summarized. These reports, originally presented at a day-long workshop conference, are then presented in full. They address these topics: (1) the impact of new technologies, (2) the curriculum and skills, (3) the impact of social change on the workplace, and (4) new curriculum directions. Following these reports are three general papers, which were presented at the workshop by individuals, and a digest of major points raised at the conference. Finally, three appendices list project participants and describe project activities. (KH)
