Instructional Development: Politics and Hierarchies.
Smock, Richard
The Office of Instructional Resources of the University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign is described in relation to the suprasystem encompassing the state legislature, the board of trustees, parent and alumni groups, and state and federal agencies. The system consists of campus administration, colleges, academic departments, research units, and other campus agencies; the subsystem, which is the Course Development Division; and a campus newsletter devoted to student evaluations of many courses on campus. The office combined two agencies already active on campus, namely the Office of Instructional Television and the Office of Institutional Research. The overall purpose of the office was a concern for the improvement of the instructional program, particularly at the undergraduate level, to assist the faculty in their awareness of the increased use of newer techniques and media, and through studies of the influence on academic achievement of other factors in the university environment within and outside the classroom.
