Training in Curriculum Development and Educational Technology in Higher Education.
Eraut, Michael; And Others
A recent inquiry into training needs in curriculum development and educational technology in further and higher education is documented. This book describes a research project begun in 1973 at Sussex University, which identified instructional and individual procedures, problems, and requirements in training and weighed them against current provisions in colleges, polytechnics, and universities. The development of an experimental MA course at Sussex for experienced staff is discussed, and the initial findings, which resulted in the establishment of three short courses at polytechnics and the Sussex MA in Curriculum Development in Higher Education, are summarized. The book describes the investigation, pilot courses, and their evaluations. The new MA course and its evaluation are also analyzed. Appendices contain the initial diagnosis of training needs in higher education and student reports on the prototype course. A 70-item bibliography is included. (Author/LMM)
