CONFERENCE ON SYSTEMS APPROACHES TO CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION IN THE OPEN-DOOR COLLEGE (UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES, JULY 18-20, 1966).
JOHNSON, BYRON LAMAR
THE SYSTEMS APPROACH TO INSTRUCTION INVOLVES A CAREFUL SPECIFICATION OF LEARNING OBJECTIVES IN BEHAVIORAL AND MEASURABLE FORM, FOLLOWED BY A SUCCESSION OF EVALUATION-REVISION CYCLES IN THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROCESS, UNTIL NEW STUDENTS EXPOSED TO THE PROCESS ACHIEVE THE DESIRED OBJECTIVES. SEVEN MAJOR PAPERS WERE PRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE--(1) THE RELATIONSHIP OF INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS TO THE JUNIOR COLLEGE'S COMMITMENT TO CHANGE, (2) OPPORTUNITIES AND PROBLEMS IN THE USE OF COMPUTERS IN INSTRUCTION, (3) METHODS OF PREPARING OBJECTIVES TO SPECIFY STUDENT ACTION OR THE PRODUCT OF SUCH ACTION, THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THE PERFORMANCE WILL OCCUR, AND THE MINIMUM ACCEPTABLE STANDARD OF PERFORMANCE, (4) METHODS OF DEVELOPING AND VALIDATING INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS FOR USE IN INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS, (5) A DESCRIPTION OF AN OPERATIONAL PROGRAM, THE AUDIOTUTORIAL SYSTEM OF TEACHING BOTANY AT PURDUE UNIVERSITY, (6) A DESCRIPTION OF THE APPLICATION OF THE SYSTEMS APPROACH AT OAKLAND COMMUNITY COLLEGE, AND (7) THE USE OF THE SYSTEMS APPROACH IN DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAMS. EMPHASIS THROUGHOUT THE CONFERENCE WAS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF LEARNING EXPERIENCES IN RELATION TO EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES AND OBJECTIVES, THE NEED FOR FEEDBACK, AND THE NECESSITY FOR CONSTANT EVALUATION, REVISION, AND IMPROVEMENT OF THE SYSTEM.
