Course Design and Redesign Manual for Job Training Courses (First Edition). Research Report SRR 66-17.
Rundquist, Edward A.
The course design project was initiated for two reasons: (1) to discover why training courses generally are not designed or improved in accordance with seemingly obvious principles, and (2) to develop a systematic approach to course design that would result in the application of such principles. The major changes to be found in this revision concerned a criterion for stating on-the-job tasks which simplify the design process, greater emphasis on the role of tests in the feedback loop, a new point of view on the statement of objectives, and a general clarification of the steps in the design and redesign process. The 10 steps of the redesign process are: (1) state the course mission, (2) identify the tasks to be learned, (3) establish gross job entry standards for inventory tasks, (4) group the tasks for instructional planning purposes, (5) develop training exercises for each task, (6) state tentative end-of-course objectives, (7) develop lesson plans, (8) integrate lesson plans within and across instructional units, (9) conduct course and evaluate attainment of end-of-course objectives, and (10) improve the course.
