Summary

As student activists grapple realistically with problems of rules and the distribution of power, they are asking for more "authentic" and meaningful interaction with each other and with faculty members. In response to student activism, educational innovations are underway at the University of California at Berkeley and at San Francisco State College. At Berkeley, the Board of Educational Development (BED), created to give encouragement and approval to new programs designed to improve ways of teaching and learning, has approved 9 student-developed courses. Groups of 3 to 6 students meet with a professor each week for "tutorials," or intensive discussion of readings and lecture materials. Other efforts include work-study arrangements, a summer "residence college," interdisciplinary courses, one-course pass-fail options, and independent study. The most important change is official sanction by university mechanisms of continuing educational reform. At San Francisco State, the Experimental College was initiated by students, with faculty and administrative assistance and encouragement, to provide a "counter-environment of freedom" on the campus. Courses range from fairly technical subjects to explorations in understanding self and society. The attitudes of key faculty, students, and administrators are changing because of their involvement with experimental programs at the College. (WM)
