A learning college for the 21st century by Terry O'Banion( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph reviews the emerging emphasis on learning in education and the development of the concept of "learning colleges," providing specific case studies of reform efforts at community colleges. Following introductory materials, chapters 1-6, all authored by Terry O'Banion discuss the following: Chapter 1 discusses the wave of educational reform arising from the 1983 publication, "a Nation at Risk," analyzing the general failure of these reforms and problems associated with the traditional time-, place-, efficiency-, and role-bound architecture of education. Chapter 2 reviews a second reform movement, stemming from the early 1990s, which emphasizes learning in the educational process. This chapter also discusses pressures resisting this change and those forcing a focus on learning. Chapter 3 illustrates the foundations of the current emphasis on learning in earlier reform movements and proposes a new model of a learning college, or an institution designed to help students make passionate connections to learning. Chapters 4 and 5 focus on the potential role of technology in creating learning colleges and describe how recent progress in learning research and outcomes measures can be applied to help build such organizations. Chapters 6 through 11 describe efforts to become more learning-centered at the following six community colleges: Sinclair Community College (Ohio) (by David H. Ponitz), Jackson Community College (Florida) (by Lee Howser and Carol Schwinn), Lane Community College (by Jerry Moskus) (Oregon), the Maricopa Community Colleges (Arizona) (by Paul A. Elsner), Palomar College (California) (by George R. Boggs and Diane G. Michael), and the Community College of Denver (Colorado) (by Byron McClenney). Finally, chapter 12 (Terry O'Banion offers a practical guide for community colleges interested in launching learning college initiatives of their own. (Tgi)

Launching a learning-centered college by Terry O'Banion( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document describes the principles in a learning college, opportunities to create learning colleges, and key factors in molding an institution into a learning college. The principles state that a learning college: 1) creates substantive change in individual learners; 2) engages learners in the learning process as full partners who must assume primary responsibility for their own choices; 3) creates and offers as many options for learning as possible; 4) assists learners to form and participate in collaborative learning activities; 5) defines the roles of learning facilitators in response to the needs of the learners; and 6) succeeds with its learning facilitators only when improved and expanded learning can be documented for learners. Opportunities for creating a learning college include capitalizing on a natural trigger event, identifying needs through an assessment, building on existing innovations, and initiating conversations on learning. Finally, key factors for launching a learning college are building a critical coalition, creating an emerging vision, creating action plans, involving all stakeholders, ensuring appropriate support, creating an open system of communication, considering consultants and established processes, paying attention to language, reallocating resources, evaluating, and committing to the "long haul". Each of these principles, opportunities, and key factors are discussed in the document. Contains 31 references. (Ama)
Creating more learning-centered community colleges by Terry O'Banion( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Efforts by community colleges to become more learning-centered reflect the reforms taking place in traditional higher education. In addition to making learning the highest priority, American education must continue to overhaul its outdated, traditional framework restricted by time, place, bureaucracy, and limited teacher roles. The ideal model of education, the learning college, should inspire substantive change in individual learners, endow them with responsibility for their education, offer as many learning options as possible, assist in collaborative learning activities, define the roles of learning facilitators by the needs of the learners, and record improved and expanded learning. To achieve this ideal, six community colleges created the following goals: to recast mission statements to focus on learning, realign current structures to foster teamwork, involve all stakeholders in the educational process, and develop an open system of communication. Key issues and obstacles in becoming more learning-centered include funding, recognizing a collective need for change, and collaborating to achieve a common goal. Meeting these challenges, as well as linking every action with learning and evaluating the outcomes, are the first steps in becoming a learning-centered institution. (Contains 43 references.) (Ykh)

Organizing staff development programs that work by Terry O'Banion( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guidelines in organizing a staff development program in a community college are outlined. Initially, some kind of assessment must be made to determine program needs. Four areas to assess include: (1) administrative views and support; (2) present level of staff development activities; (3) institutional and personal/professional needs; and (4) internal and external resources available to the institution. A statement of philosophy for the staff development program should be developed and approved by those for whom the program is designed. The organization of the program must be appropriate to the limitations and resources of the institution. This organization can include an advisory committee, a full-time coordinator, and the college staff members themselves. A wide variety of activities including development of program materials, methods of improving instruction, and off-campus meetings must be designed to meet the various needs of all the constituencies represented in the institution. Appropriate incentives and rewards must also be made available to the participants. An adequate level of funding is needed for the successful implementation of the program. Finally, there must be an evaluation of the overall program, including indications of improvement in the development of individual staff members. (Author/MB)
