The Continuing Challenge. The Program for Innovation and Improvement in the Instructional Process.
California State Univ. and Colleges, Los Angeles. Office of the Chancellor.
This is the second major report for this program, begun in 1971 to improve the educational offerings and opportunities available to students in The California State Universities and Colleges (CSUC). The objective has since broadened to include a program of professional development. Other concerns are the acquisition of basic skills, response to a steady or declining enrollment, intersegmental cooperation in innovation, and joint projects with community colleges and high schools. Data on nearly 2000 innovative projects are now available to the faculties of the University of California and CSUC. One section of the report deals with single campus projects, multi-campus projects, and campus-administered small grant programs. Another deals with professional development in the CSUC, a survey of CSUC Writing Projects, and a progress report on the performance based credit by evaluation system. Appendices include abstracts of innovative funded projects for 1972-77, a list of mini-grants in 1975-77, and publications of new program development and evaluation from 1972-77. (VT)
