Update 1: A Report of the Beginning Efforts in Instructional Development at William Rainey Harper College.
Voegel, George H.
A 6-week summer workshop on instructional development took place at William Rainey Harper College (Illinois) in 1968. Six outside consultants and 10 faculty members discussed topics relating to (1) developing instructional concepts for courses, units, and learning steps; (2) developing instructional objectives, criteria and conditions of performance; (3) modifying and refining objectives, course outlines, and related tests; and (4) developing instructional strategies and tactics that will help achieve the objectives. An important outcome of the workshop was the participants' realization of the complexity of instruction that is based on behavioral objectives. The diversity of opinions presented by the consultants enabled each to select the most suitable techniques for his subject matter and his own skills. Three follow-up sessions were held during the following year. The participants reported on the progress they had made in teaching their various courses.
