A Model for Departmental Curricular Change: An SREB/SSCA Undergraduate Education Reform Project Report.
Ranta, Richard R., Comp.
This monograph is the report of a project designed to bring alternative means of addressing classroom instruction, curricular offerings, and departmental administration to tradition-bound departments. Section one contains an overview of the project, describing the organization of project, describing the organization of project teams that interacted with three college speech communication departments selected for participation in the testing of the model strategy--a consulting process for organizing and implementing change. Section two contains the fact finding reports prepared after the first visits of the project teams to the departments. Section three contains the evaluation reports generated by the final visits to the project schools, focusing on the implementation of the previous project team reports by the three schools and their reactions to and suggestions for program design. Section four reports on the final workshop of the project, in which the project teams and selected members of the communication departments met to discuss the effects of the project and the available strategies for implementing ongoing curriculum change and development. The final section offers the conclusion that the modeled process was effective in helping educational departments study alternative ways of improving instruction, curriculum, and administration. (RL)
