WORK INSTRUCTION PROGRAMS FOR THE FOOD SERVICE INDUSTRY.
KONZ, STEPHAN A.; MIDDLETON, RAYMONA
A PROJECT WAS INITIATED TO DEVELOP EFFICIENT WORK METHODS FOR 100 COMMON TASKS IN THE FOOD SERVICE INDUSTRY AND THEN TO PREPARE PROGRAMED LEARNING "PACKAGES" FOR EACH OF THESE TASKS FOR TRAINING POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES AND EMPLOYEES WITH LOWER LEVELS OF EDUCATION TO HOLD USEFUL JOBS. THE CONCEPT OF PROGRAMED LEARNING PACKAGES FOR FOOD SERVICING WAS DEMONSTRATED TO BE EFFECTIVE IN PRELIMINARY FIELD TRYOUTS. EACH PACKAGE CONSISTED OF A SET OF SLIDES, COMBINING PHOTOS AND CAPTIONS, THAT DEPICTED A SERIES OF PROGRAMED STEPS ORGANIZED TO TEACH A SINGLE FOOD PREPARATION TASK. AUDIO TAPES WERE INCLUDED IN THE ORIGINAL PLAN BUT WERE DISCARDED WHEN EXPERIMENTS SHOWED THEY CONTRIBUTED LITTLE TO TASK LEARNING. THE TASKS COVERED BY THE PROGRAMED SLIDES WERE DIPPED SALAD ASSEMBLY, CLEANING A MEAT SLICER, MAKING SALAD SANDWICHES, MAKING SLICED MEAT SANDWICHES, MAKING CHANGE, BREADING FOODS FOR DEEP-FAT FRYING, FROSTING A CAKE, CUTTING A CAKE, PORTIONING PUDDING, AND CUTTING A PIE. ONLY THESE 10 PROGRAMED LESSONS WERE COMPLETED WHEN THE PROJECT WAS CANCELLED BECAUSE OF A LACK OF FUNDS. THE COMPLETED PROGRAMED LESSONS WERE MADE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF INSTITUTIONAL MANAGEMENT, KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY. (JH)
