Problems and Issues in Sprecifying Behavioral Instructional Objectives for Graduate Courses in Library Administration.
Putnam, William
The theory of behavioral instructional objectives is applicable in the design of library administration courses; however, it does give rise to a number of problems when so applied. Chief among these is that the theory of behavioral instructional objectives has been elaborated by pedagogues so that the theory is not, understandably, uniformly applicable to adult education. The twofold purpose of this report is to bridge the communication gap between educational researchers and those at work designing library administration courses for the continuing education of librarians, and to discuss the problems that arise when educational research findings are applied to library education. It was concluded that the application of the theory of behavioral instructional objectives to adult leaners by those developing graduate library administration courses might lead to a significant modification and broadening of the scope of the theory as it now stands. Moreover, the field of library education stands to benefit from the application of the theory to library administration courses by stimulating the production of highly valuable teaching materials such as case studies and simulation studies.
