Change Agent in a Multicampus System.
Provost, David H.
Educational change or innovation in the California State University and Colleges System is outlined in this paper within the framework of the program for Innovation and Improvement in the Instructional Process. Within this framework, two groups have primary responsibility: (1) the administrators on each of the 19 campuses who act as primary liaison persons for the program, and (2) the staff of the Division of New Program Development and Evaluation in the Chancellor's Office who administer this special state grant program. This paper summarizes the meeting in October 1975 of coordinators regarding their roles and the problems they face. Among the topics discussed are methods of defusing faculty apprehension about new approaches to teaching and learning; approaches to encourage faculty to take advantage of the opportunities the program provides; assisting the project directors when the proposal has been approved to get the project underway; and mechanisms for dissemination of information on what is being tested, how it is faring, and the results.
