TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE AND THE JOURNEYMAN ELECTRICIAN, AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY IN CONTINUING EDUCATION. VOLUME II, COURSE AND SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS.
BUSHNELL, DAVID S.
A SURVEY OF THE MEMBERS OF LOCAL 617, INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD OF ELECTRICAL WORKERS, SAN MATEO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, REVEALED THAT THE ELECTRICIANS FELT THEY NEEDED--(1) A REVIEW OF THE FUNDAMENTALS OF ELECTRICITY AND ELECTRIC CIRCUIT THEORY, BOTH FOR AC AND DC CURRENTS, (2) NEW APPLICATIONS AND USE OF ELECTRICAL TEST EQUIPMENT, (3) THE ABILITY TO READ AND INTERPRET SCHEMATIC DIAGRAMS, WIRING DIAGRAMS, AND BLUEPRINTS, (4) THE ABILITY TO TROUBLESHOOT ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS, MOTOR CIRCUITS, AND CONTROL CIRCUITS, (5) A REVIEW OF SIMPLE ELECTRICAL CALCULATIONS, (6) INFORMATION ON HOOKING UP MOTORS, CONTROLS, RELAYS, AND OTHER ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS, AND (7) A THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE AND APPLICATION OF THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE AND LOCAL VARIATIONS OF IT. A COURSE WAS DEVELOPED TO COVER THESE MAJOR CATEGORIES AND INCORPORATE NEW CONCEPTS IN TRAINING. SIX SECTIONS WERE ESTABLISHED USING 3 DIFFERENT MODES OF INSTRUCTION--(1) AUTO TUTOR MACHINE AND LABORATORY, (2) LIVE INSTRUCTION WITH TEACHING-MACHINE GRADING AND LABORATORY, AND (3) LIVE INSTRUCTION REVIEW WITH AUTO TUTOR AND LABORATORY. THE AUTO TUTOR TEACHING MACHINE PRESENTS INFORMATION TO THE STUDENT IN THE FORM OF A FEW FACTS AT A TIME AT THE STUDENT'S OWN RATE OF LEARNING AND CHECKS LEARNING WITH MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS. THE MACHINE GRADING SYSTEM, TESTING AND RECORDING ELECTRONIC DEVICE (TRED) 135A, IS AN ELECTRONIC MACHINE DESIGNED TO GIVE TESTS TO STUDENTS AND RECORD THE ANSWERS ON IBM CARDS. THIS DOCUMENT PRESENTS THE COURSE OUTLINE, REVISIONS OF THE AUTO TUTOR FILM SYSTEM, TEXTBOOKS, LESSON ASSIGNMENTS, LABORATORY ASSIGNMENTS, AND TESTS USED BY THE 6 GROUPS IN THE 18-WEEK TRAINING PROGRAM. "TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE AND THE JOURNEYMAN ELECTRICIAN--AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY IN CONTINUING EDUCATION, VOLUME I," (VT 002 914) PRESENTS THE BACKGROUND, DEVELOPMENT, AND RESULTS OF THE PROJECT. (HC)
