The student must also cooperate with his fellow learners while still developing an ability to take more responsibility for his own work (luring his college years so that his program of studies matches his own academic interests and ultimate career goals." At Evergreen this process is called "learning how to learn" - development of the skill required to solve complex problems, often within sets of unfamiliar circumstances such as those demanded in the "real world". Thus, the faculty member is as much of a learning guide as a learned dispenser of information, recognizing that no one has all the answers for every problem all the time. The quest for answers to human problems is shared by all members of the learning community. Evergreen's faculty planning team, which has been hard at work since its arrival last September, consists of 18 persons from such fields as English, sociology, chemistry, mathematics, political science, biology, history, philosophy, psychology, art and physics. In terms of experience, these faculty represent 38 different fields - or academic disciplines, as higher educators like to put it. Their Other interests and accomplishments include COmputer programming, film-making, ecology, music, drama, mountain climbing and others. It is the rule rather than the arning exception when one sees a and physicist and an artist at to Evergreen working together on a program of studies that seeks to pull together not only these Patterns seemingly unrelated fields but also psychology and the anthropology. It's really not se real unusual that a chemist who has Program broad experience in the use of media - film, tapes, slides - on the heads a program that also includes Or a biologist by training who leads a group which includes an ecologist, political scientist, artist, architect and sociologist as they tackle the problem of environmental design. Or a mathematics teacher coordinating the activities of a group which also includes the fields of literature, sociology, drama and philosophy - all focused on the medium of dramatic performance• Or several English professors taking the lead in the development of contracted studies in which students, as individuals or in groups, may sign up with college sponsors for research projects, internships, work-and-study programs or development of specific skills through short courses, workshops and self-learning packages. Evergreen's faculty members will continue to pursue scholarship in their own fields of expertise and will contribute heavily in those areas. However, they will also pursue expanded interests beyond single specialities to assure continuous regeneration and vitality in academic programs. The idea of faculty cooperative learning is as evident during the current planning period as it will be when students arrive at Evergreen. For example, take the recent "Self-Paced Learning Week", a five-day period in which faculty and other staff got together to first discuss and then put into practice some of the concepts behind such instructional modes as mini-courses, workshops, computer-aided instruction and packaged learning. The purpose of this kind of self-paced, individualized instructional system is to allow a student to organize his time and talent toward the mastery of a skill or difficult concept. These programs can be part of a Scouts Go On Camping It was a wet, wild and wonderful weekend for more than 60 scouts from the Mason County District May 14, 15 and 16. This year's Camporee was held on Bingham Creek about 2 miles east of Lake Nahwatzel, the same site of last year's Camporee. Troops 103, 110, 112, 155 and 160 checked in between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. Friday evening accompanied by nine scoutmasters. Members of Explorer Post 711 inspected the troops and led them to their campsites on the bank of the creek where they made camp. Following a rousing campfire they retired for the night. Saturday, the boys competed as patrols in lashing, compass work, fire building, rope toss and a cross country trailing course laid out by the Explorer Scouts. About dinner time the rain came Scoutmasters also stayed the night. All competition scheduled for Sunday was canceled and the points earned for the competition ~+ were totalled. Points were also -, earned for scout skills such as meals, camp area equipment and scout spirit. Cougar patrol of 160, earned 592 points for first place, Flaming Arrow patrol of l l 2, 360 points for second and Coyote patrol of 103,285 points for third. All troops received a yellow participation ribbon.

During the intensive "Self-Paced Learning Week", faculty and staff discussed the different kinds of programs that can be designed, equipment and materials to be used, and evaluation techniques to assure that objectives and results match. The week also included workshop sessions, during which faculty members actually produced program items such as film loops, slides, audio and video tapes, computer packages and graphms materials. This combined program involving both discussion and production enabled, the f~cuJty to share concepts and convert theory into practice. For many, this was a brand new learning experience and a most valuable one. Faculty, aided by Evergreen's library media staff and students, will be producing their own packaged learning programs after the college opens• Budgetary constraints preclude purchase of a full range of learning packages• And, it is important that material be tailored to specific Evergreen programs. Faculty learning about self-paced instructional programs doesn't end with one week's work.

"Self-Paced Learning Week" is but one example Of the cooperative planning and faculty learning that has characterized the design of all Evergreen programs. The entire faculty, working as a team, labored many weeks to grind out details of the Coordinated Studies program. Coordinated Studies involve small learning communities - usually consisting of 100 students and Future activities will include a total faculty focus on Contracted Studies and on opportunities for part-tilne students, about 300 of whom will be admitted next September. "ln short," says Vice President and Provost Barry: "Every effort is being made to assure that Evergreen becomes a true learning community that reflects the nature of the real world, where none of the problems man faces are simple and where none of the parts become, in their own conception, more important than the whole."
