In 1974 a program was undertaken at the university to improve instruction by means of providing small grants to faculty members to carry out promising proposals for instructional improvement. Eleven projects were conducted in the second year of the program and are described in reports. The projects were for : (1) computer-based instruction in a geostatistics lab course; (2) the use of videosimulation and other media to improve interpersonal skills; (3) videotaping for teaching interviewing skills; (4) a film-centered beginning German course; (5) audiovisual innovation for teaching counseling skills; (6) audiotutorial methods in college algebra; (7) self-study problem modules in physics for engineering and science majors; (8) integration of print and nonprint materials with course objectives; (9) facilitating access to geological materials; (10) an interdisciplinary course in Renaissance art, literature, and music; and (11) sequential interdisciplinary competency-based science and social studies modules.
