Guidelines for the Development of Minicourses.
Borg, Walter R.
This paper pulls together the knowledge and insights that have been accumulated in the development of Minicourses. It is expected that the guidelines will be revised and enlarged as new knowledge about this work is accumulated. The guidelines cover the following aspects of Minicourse development: initial planning, the introduction film, the instructional film, the model film, the practice lesson, the teacher handbook, evaluation forms, and the coordinator's handbook. A separate section devoted to each of these elements describes in detail the purpose of that particular element and then lists comprehensive guidelines. (Appendixes contain sample materials: a checklist of teacher activities for Minicourse Eight, a daily course schedule for Minicourse Nine, a list of techniques and principles related to learning from films, and a list of film credits for a minicourse introduction film.)
