Toward Instructional Accountability. A Practical Guide to Educational Change.
Roueche, John E.; Herrscher, Barton R.
In higher education especially, the obsolescence of skills, knowledge, and competencies in teaching dictates the need for continuous staff development. Given the assumption that superior and innovative instruction that motivates student learning can shape institutional identity as well, this book provides selected readings that advocate a systematic approach to instruction that allows instructors to meet the diverse needs of students. To assist the reader in developing skills, attitudes, and knowledge, the book can serve as a self-contained course in instructional improvement. Sections of this guide, each of which is introduced by a rationale and a set of objectives for study, include ones dealing with individualized instruction, accountability-based instruction, purposes of education, assessment of learning, and evaluation of instructional programs.
