Summary

This occasional paper, the first in a "new" series, describes the background, activities, and experiences of the Long Island Consortium, a cooperative effort of two-year and four-year colleges committed to organizing a model program of faculty development. The consortium was organized under an initial grant from the Lilly Endowment. In May and June 1974, 20 faculty from the cooperating colleges participated in a workshop which analyzed major problem areas in the teaching of history curricula, composition of the student body, teaching objectives, and teaching approaches. Each participant, working alone or in a team, undertook a specific project during the workshop--curriculum revision, the development of a simulation game, or the preparation of oral history and videotapes. Follow-up conferences were held throughout the 1974-75 academic year. As a result of participating in the program, many instructors began using new approaches and materials. Far fewer of their students dropped out of the fall semester course than had been the case in the past, and the usually large decline in enrollment in the spring semester did not occur. Moreover, the instructors reported consistently higher class attendance. "Lessons" learned from the model program experience are summarized and future plans are described. (Author/RM)
