Introduction to Teaching Adults. Module 5: Designing Instruction.
This module on elements and procedures involved in planning instruction is the fifth of 11 modules in the set, Introduction to Teaching Adults. Designed to meet the learning needs of part-time continuing education instructors, these modules can be used as resource materials for local workshops or study-discussion groups, as self-instruction (each module takes approximately two hours), and as a correspondence course. (Source information on correspondence study is cited in module 1.) All modules except the first are to be used in part in conjuction with an audiotape. The objective of the module is for the teacher to be able to identify content for a course, arrange it in a logical order, and prepare lesson plans for use in teaching adults. The booklet first discusses some factors that affect decisions about what to teach and how to teach it. It then suggests a procedure to follow in designing instruction, that includes four basic phases: specifying objectives, identifying and arranging learning tasks, selecting techniques and devices, and developing evaluation instruments. A case study is presented to show how the process is applied. (YLB)
