A General Guide for Planning Facilities for Occupational Preparation Programs. Final Report. Research Series No. 38.
Meckley, Richard F.; And Others
Pivotal questions about the educational program to be offered are posed, and the answers bear directly on the preparation of educational specifications. Recent instructional trends are incorporated, and provision is made for the development of a particular school's philosophy of education regarding program objectives, teaching activities, and learning activities, as a preliminary step in the development of facility requirements. Two important factors which influence facility requirements are (1) modes of learning which include action, reaction and interaction learning, and (2) specialized versus multi-use space for which lecture/demonstration areas, seminar areas and laboratories must be considered. A major portion of the document is in a check list format which allows for consideration of alternatives in developing facility requirements. A bibliography of 89 reference sources offers a more detailed treatment into the various phases of facility planning. A related document is ED 026 537. (CH)
