Instructional Research and Development at Brigham Young University: A Statement of Philosophy and Intent.
Merrill, M. David; Harrison, Grant V.
This document, the first of a series, details some of the elements in Brigham Young University's Instructional Research and Development Program which reflect the belief that a training program for specialists in instructional development must contain a different emphasis than a research training program. The topics considered include 1) curriculum control which has eliminated peripheral areas of emphasis and made the master's and doctor's degrees in instructional psychology the primary emphasis of the graduate educational psychology program; 2) a five-phase internship moving the student through a series of experiences which require him to simulate the career involvement he will later experience; 3) a consortium within the university, consisting of the Department of Education, the Department of Psychology, and the Department of Instructional Research and Development; 4) a consortium external to the university of agencies involved in instructional development, providing a possible source of internship, and consisting of the Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development, Systems Development Corporation, McGraw Hill, and the local public schools; 5) the staffing pattern for Instructional Research and Development; and 6) a developed training package to be distributed to other agencies.
