veteran teacher visits the younger
man's classes and offers him spe-
cific constructive hints about what
he is doing wrong and how to
correct it.
Consult Senior Professor
The senior professor is also
available for consultation and ad-
vice on a wide range of questions
covering course planning, the
relative merits of teaching by
lecture and by discussion, "grad-
ing on a curve," preparation of
examinations, the instructor's ob-

ligation to continue research, and
the like.
A less desirable situation greets
the man whose first teaching role
is at the University as faculty man
with rank of instructor or higher.
"We do a less deliberate job with.
our new instructors," Dean Heyns
says, "and I think a less good
one."
This problem is no particular
one of the University's. Heyns
claims that in general, all col-
leges pay too little attention to
the fact that the instructors po-

sition is a learning jof of teach-
ing.
Suggest Two Functions
The creators of the proposed
center suggest two particular
functions for the center which
would aid the neophyte instructor:
Planning and operating semi-
nars for new appointees with less!
than one year of teaching ex-
perience. Typical seminar topics
might include, grading, counseling,
making assignments, evaluating
classroom effectiveness.
Providing orientation for new
faculty. Included in this could be
a program to introduce faculty
members to the particular stu-
dent's curriculum, administrative
procedures, services .facilities and
physical plant of the institution.'
Improve All Instruction
Although prime importance may
be put on the assisting of new.
members of the academic com-
munity, the center's aim is to im-
prove all instruction.
Veteran teachers are not neces-
sarily good ones, and even the
good teachers can benefit by new
techniques and the lessons "of
others:
Thus, the committee views the
teaching center as a research -fa-
cility which can give faculty mem-
bers sustained and intensive as-
sistance in carrying out ideas for
the continued improvement of in-
struction.

In listing suggested functions of
the center, the committee included
seven items which would aid both
new and experienced college
teachers:
1) Preparing and publishing
concise pamphlets on the seminar
topics which would be available
to all members of the faculty.
2) Operating colloquia on prob-
lems of higher education.
3) Developing and maintaining
a reference library indexed for
different types of teaching prob-
lems.
4) Encouraging the evaluation
of new ideas and developments
relevant to teaching.
Establish Seminars
5) Assisting individual colleges
or departments in setting up sem-
inars specific to their specialties.
6) Aiding instructors who wish
to carry out research on their own
teaching.
7) Visiting classes when request-
ed by individual faculty members.
