Ericksen, Stanford C., Ed.; Cook, John A., Ed.
A compendium of reports of experimental instructional projects and educational programs generated by teachers at 10 midwestern universities is presented. Most of the items report changes in a particular discipline area, but these arrangements can frequently be adapted for use in other departments and interdisciplinary programs. Subject matter areas include: transactional learning system for an introduction to advertising; chemistry, clay, and pottery; biology; videotapes and microcomputers in introductory chemistry; advanced composition for prospective high school teachers; master's level therapeutic recreation curriculum; instructional gaming in history; calculator calculus; English for foreign mathematics teaching assistants; self-instructional laboratory stations in neuroanatomy; a competency-based curriculum for graduate study in music; and instructional resources and graduate assistance training for developmental psychology. Institutional support areas include: dental faculty development; implementation of TIPS in the teaching of undergraduate science courses; faculty development; women in the humanities interdisciplinary program; an undergraduate program in mathematical methods in the social sciences; and course and program evaluation by students. A cumulative index to the 14 reports is included. (SW)
