Review and Synthesis of Research on Individualizing Instruction in Vocational and Technical Education.
Impellitteri, Joseph T.; Finch, Curtis R.
An integrated framework for individualized instruction in vocational and technical education could consist of five components, including the student, teacher, environment, instructional content, and mediation. In this review, research and development materials identified through a computer search of materials in the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), are grouped according to this framework. Sections are: (1) Issues in the Design of Individualized Instruction, emphasizing the teacher component, (2) Student Characteristics Research, emphasizing the student component, (3) Educational Technology, emphasizing the mediation component, (4) Instructional Strategies, emphasizing the teacher component, and (5) Instructional Systems Approaches, emphasizing research which takes a more integrated approach to individualized instruction. Studies relating to the instructional component are located throughout the sections. It was recommended that cooperative efforts of practitioners and researchers, including doctoral students, are needed to improve the current status of individualized instruction. We must also acknowledge and utilize selected ideas and devices initially developed for military use. (SB)
