An Evaluation of a Faculty Planned Instructional Development Program at Florida Keys Community College.
Fitzgerald, Richard F.
This five-part report describes and evaluates an in-service instructional development course, which was conducted between December 1978 and February 1979 in a series of five modules for faculty at Florida Keys Community College (FKCC). Chapter I presents introductory material discussing the need for such a course, identifying the criteria upon which the course was evaluated, and defining terms. After Chapter II reviews related literature, Chapter III presents: (1) a step-by-step description of course-planning activities, in which course objectives were determined by faculty responses to the Herrscher Instructional Effectiveness Inventory and the Raines Professional Developmental Needs Survey; (2) a brief description of the course modules, which focused on cognitive mapping, utilization of pre- and post-tests, the construction of competency-based objectives, methods of practical research, and the faculty-student-counselor relationship; and (3) a description of the methods used to evaluate the course, which included pre- and post-tests measuring participant learning and satisfaction, and a comparison of student attrition rates before and after the instructors' participation in the course. Chapter IV details findings for each component of the evaluation, and Chapter V presents summary conclusions. Pre- and post-tests are appended. (JP)
