Structured Learning and Training Environments in Soil Science. Project Report.
Foth, Henry D.
Study carrels, tape recorders, slide projectors, and other materials were used to create structured learning and training environments (SLATEs) that individualized study situations for a university soil sciences course. Four lectures and a two hour laboratory each week were replaced by one lecture, one discussion or quiz period, and a three to four hour SLATE program. A workbook was developed that coordinated all the learning tasks in chronological order for each SLATE unit. This study procedure saved time and permitted students to review notes while they were using slides and equipment. Cost of a carrel station without services or scientific equipment averaged $555. Students' attitudes, indicated on brief questionnaires distributed at the conclusion of the course, were favorable. (JO)
