This volume describes the program plans for the Learning Research and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh for 1970. The report briefly surveys the long-term objectives of each program and describes in detail the specific plans for accomplishing each project within the programs for the next contract year. (1) The basic learning studies program is to generate and to systematize knowledge about the human learning process. (2) The computer-assisted instruction program is to contribute to individualized education. (3) The educational field studies program is for acquiring knowledge from the study of State schools to develop procedures for adapting education to differing characteristics of students. (4) The individualization of the education program is to develop prototype systems of education which optimize each student's progress. (5) The long-range objective of the changing environments program is to create an experimentally grounded theory of human problem solving and social interaction. (DE)
