Instructional Development Institute for Teacher Trainers: Applications of Technology and the Newer Media for Cross-Cultural Groups. Plan of Operation.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Instructional Development Service.
A five-week summer institute for 35 teacher educators is proposed to further the improvement of undergraduate instruction in teacher training institutions. Emphasis will be on the utilization of the newer media and application of technology to education. In response to the need for a systematic approach in defining instructional problems and effecting feasible solutions, special attention will be given to updating the participants' knowledge and skills in curriculum development, particularly for programs to prepare teachers of cross-cultural groups (e.g., inner-city, migrant, and other disadvantaged youth). Approximately 50 per cent of the program time will be devoted to total group presentations and discussion; 25 per cent to small group activities and individual consultation with faculty; and 25 per cent to individual laboratory work (in such instructional approaches as closed-circuit television, modular scheduling, and auto-tutorial techniques) and to field study of such facilities as instructional media centers, listening-learning laboratories, and teaching centers. Participants will submit an instructional development proposal for institute evaluation. (Included is information on criteria for participant eligibility, faculty, facilities, and stipends.) (JS)
