Trends in University Instructional Development.
A study was conducted of the instructional development programs of selected universities to identify any trends evident in these institutions, as well as unique programs. Site visits were made to 14 institutions in order to interview staff members and clients to determine reporting arrangements, mission, public relations activities, physical facilities, and evaluation methods. The interviews were also concerned with determining how instructional design programs related to other campus units which might have responsibility for activities related to faculty development. Findings are reviewed under the headings of agency impact, activities which help emphasize teaching, broadening missions, instructional development teams, interest in microcomputers, and other agency features. Five references are listed. (LLS)
