College Research Development (CORD) Program for the Oregon State System of Higher Education. Final Report.
Paulson, Casper F., Jr.
The main purposes of the College Research Development (CORD) project were to: (1) develop educational research competencies of individual faculty members at 5 institutions in the Oregon State System of Higher Education; (2) develop research support and management capabilities within these institutions; and (3) foster interinstitutional collaboration and pooling of resources. The project was conducted by and for a consortium of institutions that included Eastern Oregon College, Southern Oregon College, Oregon College of Education, Oregon Technical Institute, Portland State University, and the Teaching Research Division of the Oregon System of Higher Education. Principal activities in the first year were seminars, workshops, and demonstrations for faculty, administrators, and business officers. Subsequent activities primarily involved preparation and review of proposals, and conducting research and development projects. Projects were completed in areas of biology, poetry, economics, music, pass/fail grading, and student evaluation of instruction. Some projects not culminating in final reports had substantial accomplishments. A sizable program patterned after CORD has been established by the State. (Author/HS)
