The New liberal arts : an exchange of views by James D Koerner( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The position taken by Stephen White, of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation (New York, New York), in the title article of this collection, states that the programs of many liberal arts colleges are moving toward incorporating applied mathematics and technological literacy into the curriculum. White also states that colleges should be adjusting their curriculum according to the demands of an increasingly computerized era. He suggests that a program to support this development be studied at the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Responses to this position were solicited from the following educators and deans: (1) Elting E. Morison, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; (2) Gaines Post, Jr., University of Texas, Austin; (3) James L. Adams, Stanford University; (4) George A. Drake, Grinnell College; (5) Dick Netzer, New York University; (6) Jacques Barzun, Columbia University; (7) Peter Caws, City University of New York; (8) Donald L. Kreider, Dartmouth College; (9) Frederick Rudolph, Williams College; and (10) Richard Warch, Lawrence University. The responses deal with analytical thinking, the role of colleges and social change, the appropriateness of the title of the essay, and computers and mathematics in liberal arts programs. In a brief afterword, White reviews and discusses several points made in the responses, noting that four contributed positive suggestions and that many criticisms were baffling or irrelevant. (Fg)

The Teaching of expository writing : an exchange of views by James D Koerner( Book )

7 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arranged in chronological order, this collection of papers explores the process involved in teaching expository writing in order to stimulate discussion, provoke comment and criticism, and provide the insights and information needed to develop a writing skills program. Much of the collection was written by persons with no direct experience in teaching expository writing: a university chancellor discusses the low writing skills among students entering his university and calls for articulation between the high school and both the college and the business world; a foundation executive voices concern for two educational programs that are jeopardized by the inability of students to write expository prose; a foreign correspondent notes that as the United States work force becomes more involved with information storage, it becomes more inept in the use of the written word; and a university dean stresses the need for teaching writing skills to students in science and engineering. The collection also contains a foundation response to one of the participants, the foundation's interim report on the problem of teaching expository writing, and reactions to the papers from experienced school teachers.

Adventures in Educational Technology by James D Koerner( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Technology in Education program funded by the Sloan Foundation during 1970-1976 has supported 400 college faculty members to experiment with new technology in instruction. The major concern is to find out if the use of a great variety of technology can reduce instructional cost and improve learning. An overall observation indicates that the potential of educational technology in higher education is impeded by: (1) a lack of consensus as to the direction of technological advances; (2) adverse faculty attitude toward improving teaching by technology with inadequate reward; (3) the difficulty of cost reduction; (4) small-scale gains in learning; and (5) the low quality of software. To enhance the influence of educational technology, more research, and large-scale experiment and development are necessary. (Sc)
