Resources for Change. A Guide to Projects 1975-76.
Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This document includes the descriptions of the 179 projects that received support from the Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education in 1975-76. The content represents resources for change, not capital resources, but those noncapital resources essential to improvement--people, institutions, and ideas. The Project Directors named are practitioners working each day to implement real improvements in their settings. And the institutions named are not just the major universities, although some of them are included. The projects represent, in their totality, the broad sweep of practitioners of organizations involved in American postsecondary education today. The ideas, although all may not be regarded as dramatically new, often are woven into new contexts and others evidence untried dimensions. The projects generally fall within certain categories: (1) expanding educational opportunity to populations poorly served; (2) new approaches to aid prospective educational consumers; (3) faculty development and new incentives for effective teaching; (4) improvement of instructional services; (5) leadership development; (6) institutional development and renewal; (7) integration and work and education; (8) development of assessment techniques for evaluation of program quality and individual learning.
