This sourcebook indicates the range of instructional technology currently being used in community colleges. Issues discussed are: overcoming the barriers to faculty involvement by organizing the staff and creating an effective reward system for instructional development; how a learning resources center can assist instructors in applying instructional technology; using modules, audiotutorials, and contracts to individualize learning; how a public television station and a community college can cooperate; reaching students who cannot come to campus through a touch-tone dial-access information retrieval system; how one college developed a complete package of instructional materials for underprepared chemistry students; expanding the learning resources center to become the hub of the college; developing fair policies of copyright and ownership of college-developed materials; applying industrial research and development procedures to education; the importance of cognitive mapping; and the recurring issues in employing instructional technology. A review of additional pertinent literature and a bibliography are also provided. Contributors include: John H. Carmichael, Gloria Terwilliger, Michael H. Parsons, Richard W. Brightman, Boyd M. Bolvin, Louis J. Kotnick, Gary T. Peterson, Marshall Fisher, Marion Neil, Elizabeth Rinnander, and George H. Voegel. (Author/DC)
