Faculty in higher education face increasingly greater challenges in their work. Agriculture faculty are no exception. Edgerton (1980) indicated that a recent study-showed that 96% of faculty believe that students are seriously deficient in basic skills. This forces faculty to increase time spent on remedial instruction and student advising. In addition, many faculty in agriculture are frustrated with the fact that an increasing number of students lack an agricultural background thereby making group instruction more difficult.
