Revitalizing General Education in a Time of Scarcity : a Navigational Chart for Administrators and Faculty
In recent years more and more colleges and universities have been changing their curriculum to embrace the concept of General Education and these same institutions are encountering increased pressure to turn out graduates with career-ready skills. Their study gave special attention to the implementation of the changes, and this book is the outcome of the study. Realistic and practical, the book explores the many forces that affect an institution's efforts to provide students with the fundamentals of a liberal arts education. They profile colleges and universities that are not famous, elite, or wealthy, with the intention that their experiences will be helpful to others attempting change in the face of limited resources. And they breathe life into their discussion with fifteen detailed case studies and a wealth of stories and quotes from faculty members and administrators about their struggles to change the curriculum.
