So What's Different? Student Achievement and Attitude Results from Instructional Development Projects.
Eastmond, J. Nicholls; Van Horn, Kathleen L.
Reported are the results of instructional development projects at Utah State University, funded under mini grants, faculty development grants, or developmental grants to departments. These projects involve redesign of courses in media production, library resources, pattern design and fitting, counselling psychology, quantitative methods, sociology, reading, accounting, fluid mechanics, materials science, soil mechanics, and wildlife science. Individualized approach and media presentation are used in most courses. Comparative data of the alternative instructional method and original method and student feedback are included in this report. It concludes that despite limitations in evaluation design, substantial results in both student achievement and student attitude have been demonstrated, and faculty involvement in various projects is meaningful.
