Survey of Exemplary Instructional Practices.
Utah Univ., Salt Lake City. Bureau of Educational Research.
Based on structured interviews with 92 faculty members in ten departments at the University of Utah, a categorized list of innovative teaching practices was compiled. The list was separated into two major divisions. The first division deals with in-class learning materials and activities. Within this grouping there are 15 categories: discussion techniques, case study approaches, grading techniques, mastery learning, role playing, instructional games, emphasis on practical applications of subject matter, experimental approaches, teacher-prepared learning materials, team teaching, learning teams, developing the student's evaluation skills, structuring student creativity, motivation techniques, and multimedia approaches. The second major division--learning experiences provided largely outside the classroom--includes three categories: developing the student's research skills, "immersion" techniques, and field work. Each practice described is identified by instructor and course. (RT)
