Documentation and the Course Development Process (or Chronicles of Tragedy, Despair and Occasional Ecstasy).
Forman, David C.; And Others
There are many barriers that present real problems in the process of documenting the development of a course, but if the system is kept simple and straightforward, documentation should give the professional information which will result in a better course. Documentation techniques used during the development of a course on the cultural history of the Great Plains at the University of Mid-America included progress reports, inter-team memos, minutes of team meetings, written critiques of course materials, collection of papers, and a questionnaire answered by all team members. Other documentation techniques that could be used include: (1) a journal kept by each team member in which the day's activities are noted, (2) an outside observer who records the activities of the team, (3) interviews, (4) a detailed calendar to record day to day activities, and (5) a record of budgeting decisions.
