Rives, Stanley G.; And Others
Faculty and instructional development programs at Illinois State University are presented. The first chapter discusses the evolution of the programs, including the institutionalization of the innovation. In chapter two the instructional development program is outlined. Administration of the program, program participants, projects, and summary observations are described. The professional development center, including the educational leave program, special program support, and dissemination activities are discussed. Illinois State's Teaching/Learning Center, which served as a catalyst and support for faculty efforts at instructional improvement, is detailed. Internal and external evaluations of the Kellogg Project, which sponsored the Teaching/Learning Center, are also provided. The future of faculty and instructional development is considered in the final chapter, including 14 principles of development, such as: (1) programs should be based on identified needs of the faculty and the institution; (2) programs should have clear, attainable goals; and (3) programs should create a sense of faculty ownership. A 39-item bibliography is included. Details of the professional development center educational leave program and a copy of a paper evaluating the Kellogg Project are appended. (PHR)
