Geis, George L.; And Others
The prototype of an in-service, self-instructional course for college level teachers was developed during this two year project. The curriculum of the course is covered in four volumes; an additional volume gives a final report on the project itself. The course covers the techniques of defining and stating instructional goals; measuring and testing the effectiveness of instructional methods and materials; developing solutions to instructional problems; and writing, trying out, and revising both programed testing and teaching material. A set of relevant readings and bibliographies is provided along with a workbook. The curriculum emphasizes the needs for empirical development of instructional materials and advocates the iterative process of write-test-revise in order to efficiently and effectively reach intended goals.
