The Office of Educational Development: A Case Study in the Coast Community College District.
Luskin, Bernard J.
The Office of Educational Development, coupling humanism with technology, is a single major component of the educational development process of the Coast Community College District (California) in its continual effort to improve instructional programs. The Office offers a service function while the colleges in the district remain autonomous. Its objective is not toward change alone, but toward improvement. It provides technical expertise in obtaining information, supports the development and evaluation of instructional programs, and encourages faculty who are trying to be innovative. Although specific responsibilities of the Office and for various personnel are given, it is stressed that overlapping responsibilities and sharing of the workload is a part of the operational pattern of the office. Activities of the office include: program exploration and development, in-service training, institutional research, reimbursed projects, communications, special programs, cooperative relationships, and coordination of instructional technology. Examples of research activities carried out in the Office of Educational Development are discussed. (CA)
