The Psychologist Consultant in Educational Design.
McKee, John M.; Moon, Jeanne P.
The technology of educational design includes skills in solving performance problems, establishing training objectives, appropriate teaching strategies, course content, best teaching sequence(s), appropriate presentation mode, and type of feedback to give and when. A consulting psychologist can, through application of behavioral science, assist in the design, development, installation, and maintenance of educational products and training systems. The Individually Prescribed Instructional System (IPI) at Draper Correctional Center, which teaches basic education skills, as well as vocational skills, is an example of a training system developed and promoted by a psychologist. This system uses programmed instructional modules. In addition to the system's diagnosis, prescription, and management function, testing is conducted to evaluate the learner's progress. Contingency contracting is also used within the IPI system. The system can be tailored to a variety of settings containing different populations, and having varying amounts of resources. (DB)
