A Plan for the Improvement of Teaching in State System Institutions, 1969-1971. Progress Report II. Discussion of the Request to the Legislature for $1 Million in the 1969-70 Biennium for Improvement of Instruction.
Romney, Miles C.
This report reviews the appropriation request to the Oregon legislature. It repeats two sections of the first report (HE 001 687) dealing respectively with the basic assumptions underlying an effective program of instructional improvement, and the plan itself, which outlines measures institutions can take to improve the curriculum and instruction. The remainder of the report outlines the uses of the requested funds, if provided by the legislature. These include: the establishment at each institution in the state system of an agency responsible for: stimulating faculty awareness of institutional interest in instructional and curricular improvement; stimulating innovative efforts toward greater teaching-learning efficiency; coordinating the expertise available in the institution; and disseminating to the faculty information concerning available resources and progress in research on curricular and instructional innovation. The funds would also support faculty projects that: aim to develop undergraduate courses which emphasize student-directed study and learning; experiment with the use of television and video tape techniques; and experiment with the use of undergraduates as teachers; and promote research on teaching.
