The Development of Modular Learning for Introductory Accounting at Castleton State College: Learning Theory and Application.
O'Neil, Bryan L.
A practicum project involving the development of learning modules for introductory accounting at Castleton State College is described. After the initial step of evaluating educational materials in modular learning in accounting, learning objectives for introductory level accounting were developed. The overall learning objectives for the unit were also stated in operational terms, and a subject outline was constructed to reflect the logical flow of topics and interrelationships among topics. The next step was to select units that were constructed relatively small so that the student would not attempt to cover too much material without mastering one area. Finally, learning objectives were developed for the total number of modules and stated in specific performance terms. This course emphasized the application of bookkeeping principles along with business problems and decisions. Appended is a flow chart indicating the study/testing sequence the student will use with the self-paced learning modules. The nine modules are included. (SW)
