A Definition of Individualized Education.
Heathers, Glen
Education is individualized in measure as the learning goals an individual pursues, and the means whereby he works toward them, are selected for and by him. Individualization is not limited to independent learning or learning in a tutor-student dyad. Depending on learning goal and learner characteristics, individualized education also can occur in group contexts. Individualization is fostered through emphasizing student involvement in choosing and conducting learning activities. Managing individualized instructional programs in schools depends greatly on student self-direction accomplished either through using programmed materials or through students' developing competencies in selecting, planning, and conducting learning tasks.
