INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT--A DEMONSTRATION AND EVALUATION PROJECT. FINAL REPORT.
BARSON, JOHN
FOUR UNIVERSITIES COOPERATED WITH THE INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA CENTER AT MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY TO TEST, DEMONSTRATE, AND REFINE A MODEL FOR MEDIA INNOVATION AND INSTRUCTIONAL DEVELOPMENT WHICH HAD BEEN DESIGNED IN A EARLIER PROJECT. MEDIA, EVALUATIVE, AND INSTRUCTIONAL SPECIALIST CAPABILITIES WERE TEAMED TO THE DECISION PROCESSES OF THE INSTRUCTORS AND BROUGHT TO BEAR ON INSTRUCTIONAL PROBLEMS UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF THE MODEL'S PRECONCEIVED, SEQUENTIAL SYSTEM OF DECISION MAKING. EACH UNIVERSITY STAFF SUBMITED TAPE RECORDINGS OF ALL MEETINGS, EXPECTATION AND REACTION FORMS, SUMMARY LOGS, AND QUARTERLY AND TERMINAL REPORTS. PROJECT COURSES CHOSEN HAD LARGE ENROLLMENTS AND WERE IN ENGLISH, STATISTICS, MANAGEMENT, PSYCHOLOGY, PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION, ECONOMICS, AND GEOGRAPHY. ALL PARTICIPANTS IN THE INSTRUCTIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRIALS FOUND THE DECISION STEPS FLOWCHART TO BE PRACTICAL IN ANALYZING AND IMPROVING THE TEACHING APPROACH, BUT DUE TO DIFFERENT STYLES IN DECISION MAKING AND TO TROUBLE IN INITIALLY SPECIFYING BEHAVIORAL OBJECTIVES FOR THE COURSES, THE FLOWCHART WAS USED IN A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT WAYS, AND SEVERAL OF THE PROJECT TEAMS MODIFIED IT TO FIT THEIR NEEDS. DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION CONCERNING THE PROJECT WAS CARRIED OUT THROUGH VISITS, CONFERENCES, AND PRESENTATIONS TO PROFESSIONAL MEETINGS. (BB)
