PLANNING FOR INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES AT A RAPIDLY GROWING URBAN UNIVERSITY.
HANEY, JOHN B.; MCINTYRE, CHARLES J.
A PROJECT WAS UNDERTAKEN TO DEVELOP A CAMPUS ORGANIZATION RESPONSIBLE FOR INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF PLANS FOR IMPLEMENTING THE PROJECT IN TERMS OF THE NECESSARY STAFF, SPACE, FACILITIES, BUDGET, AND ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE. AN EQUALLY IMPORTANT, CONCURRENT TASK WAS TO INVOLVE THE FACULTY IN PLANNING FOR THE USE OF INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES IN A MANNER SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED TO THE SOLUTION OF REAL INSTRUCTIONAL PROBLEMS. WITH RESPECT TO THE MAJOR TASK, THE REPORT DESCRIBES HOW AN OFFICE OF INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES WAS CONCEIVED AND IMPLEMENTED IN A DEVELOPING URBAN UNIVERSITY. THE REPORT DETAILS THE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE, THE PERSONNEL, OPERATING AND FACILITIES BUDGETS, THE NUMBER AND TYPE OF STAFF REQUIRED, THE SPACE REQUIRED, AND THE EQUIPMENT RECOMMENDED. FACULTY INVOLVEMENT WAS BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE APPOINTMENT OF FACULTY COMMITTEES IN SIX IMPORTANT SUBJECT AREAS WITH THE TASK OF IDENTIFYING CRITICAL INSTRUCTIONAL PROBLEMS IN THEIR DISCIPLINE AND DEVELOPING APPLICATIONS OF INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES AS RELATED TO THEIR SOLUTIONS. THE CHAIRMAN OF EACH COMMITTEE WAS RELEASED PART TIME FROM OTHER DUTIES IN ORDER TO PROVIDE THE NECESSARY LEADERSHIP. CONSULTANTS FROM ABOUT THE COUNTRY WHO COULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE SOLUTION OF THE IDENTIFIED PROBLEMS WERE LIBERALLY EMPLOYED, AND THE COMMITTEES WERE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRAVEL TO OTHER INSTITUTIONS IN ORDER TO OBSERVE AND TO DISCUSS EXAMPLES OF SIGNIFICANT INNOVATIONS IN THEIR INSTRUCTIONAL AREAS. THE WORK OF THESE COMMITTEES IS REPORTED IN CONSIDERABLE DETAIL AND THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE DISCUSSED. (BH)
