Ofiesh, Gabriel D., Ed.; Meierhenry, Wesley C., Ed.
This compendium of ninety papers given at the first Programed Instruction Institute of the National Society for Programmed Instruction (NSPI) attempts to define what programed instruction is, to show what it is accomplishing right now in many fields of endeavor, and to develop a plan for its future use. The papers center on the theme of the practical application of programed instruction and are organized to reflect trends in areas of social importance such as education, industry, the military, government, and medicine. The role of the teacher in the presentation and development of programed instruction is examined, and its possible applications to the exceptional student are outlined. Instructional programing, the development of systems applications, and program evaluation are discussed. A bibliography is appended. (BB)
