Project Canada West. Interim Report.
Western Curriculum Project on Canada Studies, Edmonton (Alberta).
This first interim report of project Canada West, initiated in April, 1970, includes three papers. "Curriculum Development in Urbanization," by Dr. R. H. Sabey, Acting Executive Director, is an overview of the Project's history, purpose, and the 5 year plan for phases of research development. (See SO 000 283 for complete abstract.) Two of the papers were delivered at a workshop for sub-project leaders. "A Curricular and Instructional Design," by Dr. Ted Aoki discusses curriculum definition, learning theories, intended learning outcomes, concept teaching, teaching strategy, the teacher-student relationship, multimedia instruction, and other factors in the teaching-learning process with an appended bibliography. Dr. Donal Truss's "Busy Work or Valuing-The Use of Media in Classrooms" deals with audiovisual instruction and emphasizes use of technological equipment for taped materials and films. He presents a sample film-making scenario. Appendices to the interim report include the Constitution of Project Canada West and list of Board of Trustee personnel. Also given are the title, location, personnel, and consultants for each of the 14 sub-project teams. The Project intends to publish interim reports bi-annually. SO 000 525 contains information on the Project newsletter. (JSB)
