Instructional Development and Faculty Development at a Large University.
Doyle, Kenneth O., Jr.
Instructional development and faculty development are discussed in this speech with reference to the University of Minnesota. Three service offices whose work bears on educational development are described. They include the Center for Educational Development, the Consulting Group on Instructional Design, and the Measurement Services Center. Instructional development is defined as the creation or refinement of general approaches to instruction. Faculty development means encouraging and accomplishing professional, pedagogical, or personal growth on the part of faculty. Examples of development programs at the University of Minnesota include: the instructional use of the student newspaper for weekly minicourses; a four-day Workshop on Academic Leadership; faculty seminars by the Consulting Group on Instructional Design; Computer-generated Instructional Evaluation Narratives by the Measurement Services Center; and Self-Awareness and Assertive Communications Workshops sponsored by the University Personnel Office.
