Scanlon, Robert G.; Heathers, Glen
Two papers are presented here: "History of Individualized Instruction" by Dr. Robert Scanlon, and "Self-Directed Learning: the Master Key to Educational Reform" by Dr. Glen Heathers. Dr. Scanlon's paper briefly outlines the goals of the Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) program and discusses its place in the development of individualized instruction. Dr. Heathers' paper hypothesizes that educational reform will be accomplished through teaching all students to be competent in planning and conducting their own learning activities. He discusses some of the natable attempts at developing programs to encourage the student to employ self-direction in planning and conducting learning activities. (JY)
