The Relationship between Faculty Development (FD), Organizational Development (OD) and Instructional Development (ID): Readiness for Instructional Innovation in Higher Education. Chapter 1.
Abedor, Allen J.; Sachs, Steven G.
This chapter addresses the relationship between three different approaches to educational improvement--instructional development (ID), organizational development (OD), and faculty development (FD). These three approaches are related to each other using the concept of readiness for innovation, and a spiral relationship is postulated: an individual, or an organization, will adopt an innovation only if the variable, readiness, is at a high enough value. If not, then the level must be raised through a sequence which alternates among the three factors, FD, then OD, then FD again, and so on. The text is supplemented with three figures, and a 24-item bibliography is provided. (Author/EW)
