The Development of Individualized Instruction in Vocational Education. Final Report.
Brandau, George C.
This teacher training institute was aimed primarily at developing teacher efficiency in the writing of behavioral objectives and in developing individualized instructional programs. The grant for the inservice program came as a result of communication between the schools of the ES '70 network which highlighted the need for training in these areas, including the construction of learning packages. Therefore, it was a major objective of the institute to encourage development of skills in writing behavioral objectives, with the hope that participants would apply these skills in implementing individualized programs in their home districts. A followup workshop, which addressed the institution of change and the role of the change agent, was conceived as a result of difficulties encountered by the above ES '70 schools in implementing new programs. Specific attention was given to the problems encountered when one attempts to change curriculum and methodology in the high schools. An evaluation of both sessions is included in this report. (JS)
