A PILOT STUDY IN ADVANCED INSTRUMENTATION FOR TECHNICAL INSTRUCTORS.
LARSON, MILTON E.; O'NEILL, JOHN J.
A 2-WEEK SUMMER INSTITUTE TO PROVIDE INSERVICE TEACHERS WITH CURRENT INFORMATION ON THE PRACTICES AND CONCEPTS OF INDUSTRIAL INSTRUMENTATION WAS CONDUCTED AT RUTGERS UNIVERSITY. THE CURRICULUM WAS FOCUSED ON POST-HIGH SCHOOL, 2-YEAR INSTITUTIONAL NEEDS, WITH ADAPTATIONS DRAWN FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL. A LEARNING EVALUATION OF PARTICIPATING TEACHER-STUDENTS WAS ACHIEVED BY USE OF DATA ON PERFORMANCE TEST SCORES, OBSERVATIONS, AND REACTIONS OF STUDENTS TO THE INSTITUTE. CONCLUSIONS BASED ON THESE DATA INDICATED THE NEED FOR AN INCREASE IN INSTRUMENTATION INSTRUCTION AND THE DIFFICULTIES IN ACQUIRING COMPETENT INSTRUCTORS. ONE OF THE SOLUTIONS TO THE NEED FOR INSTRUCTOR COMPETENCE APPEARED TO BE THE PROVISION OF FUNDAMENTAL INFORMATION AND LABORATORY EXPERIENCE TO INSTRUCTORS ALREADY KNOWLEDGEABLE IN SUCH FIELDS AS ELECTRONICS, HEATING, REFRIGERATION, AND AIR-CONDITIONING. IMPLICATIONS OF THE PROJECT SUGGESTED THAT SUCH INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AS CURRICULUM GUIDES, COURSE OUTLINES, AND INFORMATION AND JOB SHEETS COULD BE DEVELOPED AS PART OF INSTITUTE EXPERIENCE. CONTINUANCE OF THE INSTITUTE DURING THE FOLLOWING SUMMER WAS RECOMMENDED. (WB)
