Summary

These conference proceedings include a summary of attitudes, both past and present, concerning liberal and vocational education, with speculation on future developments. The problems of transfer from the junior to the senior college are considered in some detail by representatives of both institutions, particularly on such points as course content and sequence, anticipation of curriculum changes, credit for evening courses, probation practices, etc. Deficiencies in preparation of junior college faculties as a whole are pointed out, and among suggestions for teacher improvement are (1) a greater competence in the subject matter taught, (2) teacher training directed specifically to the junior college's unIQue requirements, (3) where appropriate (as in a vocational course), work experience in the field, (4) sypathetic and knowledgeable counseling and guidance, (5) an appreciation of general and liberal education in contrast to specialization, and (6) a readiness to evaluate and experiment with methods of instruction.
