A Case for Integrated Instructional Technology Services (IITS) in Higher Education.
Albright, Michael J.
This paper, which presents a model for Integrated Instructional Technology Services (IITS) that is somewhat different from the existing published models for instructional technology services at the postsecondary level, begins by providing background information on the development and implementation of instructional technology services at the postsecondary level from the early 1900s to more recent times; the systems approach to teaching; the process of college teaching; faculty development programs; and classifications of instructional development services that need to be provided for institutions at the course, faculty, media development, and media utilization levels. Seven logical functional areas used to form the IITS model are then described in terms of how they can be viewed within the framework of an IITS concept: (1) learning resources; (2) classroom technologies; (3) media development; (4) instructional/faculty development; (5) instructional telecommunications; (6) instructional computing; and (7) research evaluation. Eight suggestions for implementing the model on a college or university campus conclude the paper. (8 references) (CGD)
