The Challenge of Creative Change. The Program for Innovation and Improvement in the Instructional Process.
California State Univ. and Colleges, Los Angeles. Office of the Chancellor.
For four years the California State University and Colleges attempted to encourage new approaches to instruction that would provide students with increased options in their educational programs and opportunities for faculty to test and develop their ideas for improving the quality of instruction. A number of different learning and teaching methods, tested in over 100 major pilot projects are evaluated. Assessments of campus, faculty, and student reactions to innovation and change in instruction are noted. Details are provided about the functioning and administration of each program along with a listing of all projects by kind of innovation and discipline area, including brief descriptions and statements of current status. Project evidence suggests that each instructional strategy tested has some educational value depending on discipline, student characteristics, faculty experience, and campus environment. (Author/KE)
