The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta y. 1t74 THB LgTHBBIDQE HERALD 9 6 Self -learning9 program rated high at U of L Colloquium. Dictionaries define it as a mutual dis- course of two or more persons, a dialome or conver- sation. Acting co-ordinator Ron Hall describes the U of L colloquium study program as "person-oriented. And U of L students describe colloquium as "toe on y way to learn" and "the best thing offered at the U of L.' The most accurate description about colloquium study probably lies somewhere in between these statements. The program can fit all or none of these, depending on the attitude of each participant. Now in its fifth year at the U of L, colloquium study was established as an experimenting program within the faculty of arts and science, as a means of providing alter- native educational approaches to a variety of students. Basically, colloquium study is intended to foster self- directed learning in students. Most students are advised to complete several semesters in the regular arts and science program, before entering what students term Astudent in colloquium develops a plan of studies for himself, in consultation with appropriate resource per- sons Essentially, he or she functions as a "floating Snr and has access to all academic facilities anS resources of the University. Participants ac- complishments are periodically evaluated satisfactory progress is essential if the student is to continue m colloq- uium To qualify for a degree, students apply to the Ad- vteSry Committee also responsible for the developmen of colloquium and for the admission of students to the program. Not easy course Don't let that definition about conversation and dialoeue mislead you it takes a great deal more than ?aS SOT consistent talking to complete a program of Hall, "colloquiumisaninter- exchange between students and students will want to specialize in the area but we also encourag e them five of them earning either distinction or great distinc- ti0n--People both within and University have a false idea of continues Mr. Hall, when Talking to colloquium participants is the learn of the wide range of projects the program can Lmhrace IvanMorgado, a recent Chilean immigrant to i that colloquium study is Ije only way he can get the degree he wants.

He doubts he cmdd 1 make aliving on his writing alone, so would hke to write own time while working as a high or junior all be in any university program at if it wasn't for colloquium volume of "The Hunting Hand" was published. Not for everyone Now learning more about his own style of poetry in conjunction with a member of the U of L English department, Mr. Daniel concedes that the free at- mosphere of colloquium is "not for everyone. "Most people not in colloquium think it s easy, he says "but if you're serious about your project, or want to get a degree, you really have to complete a great deal of work. The contact between the faculty and colloquium students is very important; the professors are able to offer constructive guidance with our work." Ken Sears of Nanton, also in his third year of studies, says colloquium played "a large part" in convincing him to attend the University of Lethbridge. Aiming at a career in museum management, Ken is working on a study of radical figures in Canadian history. He says he views his BA degree not as a 'job but as a foundation on which to build an education. Mr Sears says that although the regular BA degree program satisfies many students he finds it too broad in scope for those studying a particular study in depth. Maryhelen Vicars was raised in Vancouver and transferred to the U of L from Simon Fraser University in 1972 Last summer she successfully completed a collo- quium study project in marine biology in which she studied ecological relationships in the inter-tidal zone off the1 coast of California. Ms Vicars did the background research on her proj- ect at the U of L, then transferred to the University of California at Berkeley, where she worked with professionals at the institution's marine laboratory at "I had access to people doing top research in marine says Ms. Vicars. "It was a tremendous learning experience, an opportunity not often available to students in the regular program at a small institution such as the U "I think colloquium study is one of the best things about the U of L's summarizes Ms. Vicars. "It broadens our curriculum tremendously, because it enables students to draw on off-campus sources of infor- mation." Project judge In order to attain credit for projects conducted in colloquium, students are judged on the overall project, the work produced within it and whether they have met their objectives. Painters show their works, poets present their writings, explains Mr. Hall. In many cases, students par- ticipate in an oral comprehensive format similar to a graduate student's thesis presentation. "Colloquium is not a collection of courses, and is not a course structured summarizes Mr. Hall. "It is an opportunity offering scope for a wide variety of per- sonal development. Projects are judged as an entity, and are not weighted in terms of courses contained, or amount of time spent." Since colloquium is concerned with fostering intellec- tual development and inquiry, any student who under- takes a protect in colloquium and teams something about himself, his ability to leant or his academic potential, has been successful.
