Teaching and Learning. An Evaluation of the Ontario Universities Programme for Instructional Development.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
The purpose of this program was to assist faculties in Ontario universities in improving the effectiveness of instructional processes by systematic development of objectives, content, methods, and evaluation for each course offered with economy in the application of instructional resources. The first two chapters of this program report try to set the program against its historical background. The third chapter deals with the operation of individual projects. Chapter 4 examines the broader aspects of the program itself by looking at major successes and failures, the relevance of the program to Ontario universities, and the impact that the program has had in terms of a broad measure of return for effort. Chapter 5 concentrates on the overriding perceptions that were presented in terms of (1) instructional development in the Ontario universities and (2) the methods whereby instructional development might be fostered and improved. Chapter 6 contains recommendations for the future. Appendices contain: (1) more detail on the task and the method of approaching it; (2) a variety of sources outside the province as well as the individual and collective contributions provided by people within the province; (3) and a list of people spoken to.
