Administrative leadership by Paul L Dressel( Book )

13 editions published in 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Administrative leadership is examined with focus on the processes and problems of campus decision-making. Chapters include: the need for administrators; morals, ethics, and values in higher education; improving administrative communication; conceptions of decision-making; focusing administration interest; understanding external influences, mandates, administrative responsibilities; facing up to crucial problems and issues; and evaluating administrative performance. It is suggested that "crisis management" of such problems as enrollment decreases and financial pressures can impede accomplishment of more basic tasks such as establishing institutional goals and increasing productivity, and on-going evaluation of various aspects of administrative performance can eliminate the need for crisis management. Integrity and candor are identified as the basis for all deliberations in colleges and universities, and they require constant reinterpretation in adapting to changing societal demands. Resources offered include an administrator's bookshelf and glossary. A bibliography and an index are also provided. (Lc)

Improving degree programs by Paul L Dressel( Book )

10 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Factors involved in the planning, development, and review of degree programs, as well as features of traditional and alternative approaches to improving degree programs, are examined. After considering terminology and different philcsophies of education, attention is directed to the importance of program structure and the necessity of considering outcomes, content, and structure. Traditional means of structuring programs are considered, as are alternative methods that are grounded in the nature of the specific academic discipline involved. Four distinct styles of teaching and their relationship to particular outcomes are analyzed, and the usual approaches to faculty planning of courses and programs are examined. Suggestions are offered to improve course and program descriptions to increase student understanding and motivation. Systematic procedures for recurrent evaluation of courses and programs to determine program need, quality, and relationship to other curricular developments in the institution are described, and the role of student advising in curriculum and program evaluation is examined. Specific responsibilities of administrative officers at various levels in reviewing program quality and effectiveness are also addressed. A resource guide that suggests principles for program development and a second resource guide that suggests a way of dealing with the recurrent problem of course section size and the sound use of instructional resources are included, as is a comprehensive bibliography.

Liberal education and journalism by Paul L Dressel( Book )

9 editions published between 1960 and 1963 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of liberal education in undergraduate professional schools is presented. Eight types of professional schools were included: agriculture, business administration, education, engineering, journalism, music, nursing, and pharmacy. The study has been conducted along several lines. The first project consisted of the preparation of an extensive but selected and annotated bibliography, in each of the eight fields, covering (1) the historical origins of liberal education as a part of professional courses of study, and (2) the present status of liberal studies as represented in catalogues, in official institutional pronouncements, in the published documents of accrediting bodies, and in professional literature. A second inquiry was concerned with a statistical analysis of the attitudes of faculty members in representative professional schools of all eight varieties. A third approach consisted of visits to a small number of institutions selected to represent each group on the basis of geographical location, public or private support, size of student body, and other factors of statistical significance. In this monograph, concerned with undergraduate education in journalism, are brought together the results of the earlier studies of the historical development of journalism education and of the analysis of faculty members' attitudes toward liberal arts subjects.
