NEW COLLEGE Page 2 Idea for the all-campus conferences arose last January with the first one on the college's existing educational program. Almost the entire student body and faculty took part in day-long sessions which resulted in several important recommendations for improving the program. Opening session for this new conference will be an after-dinner meeting in Hamilton Center at which Dr. Raushenbush will speak. Setting the theme of the innovative in education, Mrs. Raushenbush will follow her talk with a question and answer session. At 9 a.m. Saturday, President John Elmendorf will convene a panel of speakers including Dean Jacobson, faculty member Dr. Douglas c. Berggren and second year student Lee Harding. These speakers will next join in a panel discussion on innovation, to be joined by Dr. Raushenbush and a Florida Presbyterian student. The panel will focus on questions of why there should be innovation in education, how to innovate, the most effective techniques for its implementation, and the relationship of innovation to institutional goals and educational philosophy. A general discussion of the questions also will be held with members of the audience. After lunch, students faculty and guests will be divided into discussion groups on 10 topics and will spend most of the afternoon airing individual views and arriving at group opinions.
