North Carolina Rural Renaissance Project, 1976-1980: Technical Report.
Moretz, H. Lynn
The North Carolina Rural Renaissance Project was initiated in September 1976 by a consortium of 10 community colleges located throughout the state. Its primary objectives were to provide teachers with instruction and experience in developing and producing audiovisual instructional modules; to design and produce modules on adult basic education and vocational education topics; and to disseminate the modules throughout the state. A broader underlying goal was to provide educational opportunities for the state's rural population at times and places more convenient to their needs. This project report begins by discussing the organization, governance, and concerns of the consortium. It then outlines the use of state, regional, and local workshops as the primary vehicles of staff development and describes the resultant establishment of module production teams and other project outcomes. The report goes on to provide timetables for the production of 243 modules and to briefly describe their content and mechanisms for their evaluation. The report's next section describes the low-cost statewide dissemination process, listing the 61 institutions that have reviewed and/or ordered the modules. Eight appendices are included: the module catalog and order form; a consortium organizational chart; job descriptions for consortium administrators; a module critique form; a list of projected modules; a project workshop agenda; and a module assembly checklist.
