Summary

Recent pressures on undergraduate education have led to major—but often untutored—attempts to revitalize curricula. This comprehensive handbook is designed to aid faculty, administrators, and students engaged in curriculum reform at the undergraduate level. The emphasis throughout is on planning. Professor Conrad proposes a systems model for curriculum planning and examines four major areas: general and liberal education, area concentration, experiential learning, and calendar and degree programs. In each of these areas he identifies key issues, discusses the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches, provides a historical context, outlines major trends, and describes a variety of innovations that institutions might adopt. The result is a practical, usable book.
