Summary

In describing parts of a Higher Education Act Title III "Cooperative Project for Strengthening of Developing Institutions," I wish to emphasize the development of organic cooperation among the institutions. Not only the three small state colleges, but also the developed institution (West Virginia University) has profited from the project. Vehicles which have promoted true cooperative involvement have been (1) summer writing groups (to design instructional packages) composed of institutional representatives with the ability to cooperate and with enough power to make commitments; and (2) written commitments by each institution's full-time program coordinator to such responsibilities as the development of specific instructional modules and the field testing of others. The joint production and sharing of video tape recordings and techniques was a successful entry point to building organic cooperation. Future sharing of major purchases and services will include a project using the tele-lecture system, the wire-blackboard device, and computer-assisted instruction. Data, after two years, from student tests and from laboratory and programed instruction experiments are promising. Comparison of old and new syllabuses indicate that instructors are attending better to behavioral objectives, evaluation procedures, sequence, and scope, and are building in procedures for active student involvement and corrective feedback. The project has been the organizing center for constructive change. (JS)
