Development of an Audio-Tutorial Course for Non-Major Biology Students. Final Report.
Husband, David D.
A one-semester Principles of Biology course designed for non-majors was developed to utilize the audio-tutorial method combined with the "mini-course" or concept pak approach. A total of 54 concept paks was developed, along with 12 basic lessons. Students were permitted to choose the specific concept paks that interested them most, to complete the requirements of the course. The philosophy of the course was favorably received by 85 percent of the students, and the effectiveness of the concept pak as a means of teaching was demonstrated to be above average. (Author/CP)
