Behaviorally Engineered Environments. Staff Papers.
Morreau, Larry E.; And Others
This collection of papers represents the developmental research as well as the thrust of the Regional Laboratory's (UMREL) program. UMREL has been developing behaviorally engineered educational environments through a cross-disciplinary effort in education and the behavioral sciences. The program began with the establishment of demonstration contingency-managed classrooms for use as training and research sites. These classrooms are complete, self-contained behaviorally engineered units. Instruction is individualized and programmed; the teaching techniques, curriculum materials, and physical-social environment are designed to facilitate maximum academic performance. Based on the data provided by these classrooms, UMREL is developing a multi-faceted education eco-system. This system includes: specific behavioral objectives, preservice and inservice management technique training programs, and an educational resources center. In addition, a mechanical and/or automated computer based instructional management and analysis system contains data on: 1) curriculum material related instructional objectives; 2) the effects of various procedures on behavior for use in formulating specific objectives; and, 3) school administrative activites.
