The Instructional Development Project at Harper College from 1970 to 1973 is described. The objective of the project was to improve instruction by providing a framework and an inservice training program for faculty members. A total of 30 instructors participated in the project at a total cost of $35,223 including released time costs, and approximately 4,800 students were exposed to the improvements made in instruction. A number of curriculum materials were designed and implemented as a result of the project. Participants became familiar with a greater variety of media and gained increased sophistication with production processes and the application of learning resources. Among the recommendations made for the project are a long range development plan for each division, additional released time for faculty to permit development of a complete course and the establishment of an educational development coordinator position. Appendixes contain background information and evaluation information. (JG)
