A Strategy to Obtain a School Policy on Instructional Technology.
Taber, Margaret R.
This practicum was designed to assess the need for a college-wide policy on instructional technology at the Metropolitan Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Ohio). Before designing strategies for obtaining this policy, several investigations were undertaken: (1) college publications were studied to determine how other policies and procedures were implemented and if a policy on instructional technology would be consistent with the educational objectives, philosophy, and purposes of the institution; (2) the stated goals of the district and campus presidents were reviewed to see how a policy and procedure on instructional technology could help accomplish them; (3) the campus-wide policy and procedure on curriculum development was studied as a guide for the development of policy and procedure on instructional technology; (4) meetings were held with campus administrators to determine their potential roles; (5) faculty members were interviewed to establish their levels of interest; and (6) pertinent literature was examined. The results of these investigations are discussed, and four resulting strategies for obtaining the policy are presented, each focusing on a different potential change agent within the institution.
