FD, OD, and ID, What's the Relationship: Or--New Wineskins Anyone?
Sachs, Steven G.; Abedor, Allan J.
This paper defines faculty development (FD), organization development (OD), and instructional development (ID), and discusses the interrelationships between them in effecting change in an institution of higher education. FD and OD provide the individual and organizational readiness necessary for adoption of an innovation, while ID focuses on the systematic design, development, and evaluation of educational materials, courses, etc. FD, OD, and ID are not new ideas, but are useful expository devices which allow the categorization of activities fundamentally related to the adoption of innovations.
