The 1982-1983 instructional development program at the University of North Dakota (UND) is described, with attention to activities, program evaluation results, and future directions. Additionally, a report of expenditures for 1982-1983 is included. The 3-year instructional development program was designed to provide resources for improved instruction and the professional development of faculty members as teachers. The program provides direct service, funding, and advocacy for instructional development. Direct service is provided to faculty and staff members through materials, consultation, and assistance. For each year of the 3-year project, information is provided on instructional development grants and professorships, faculty development contracts, and developmental leave supplements. In addition, results of a faculty survey are presented concerning respondents' awareness/knowledge of various aspects of the instructional development program, and their perceived performance in relation to a range of objectives. It is noted that during the 1982-1983 academic year 25 instructional development grants were awarded, involving 50 faculty members. In addition, eight persons from seven departments were awarded developmental leave supplements, and faculty development contracts were awarded for 32 projects. (SW)
