Learning Laboratories; A Guide to Adoption and Use.
Teachey, William G.; Carter, Joseph B.
After outlining the advantages of individualizing instruction through the use of learning laboratories, this book describes the physical facilities needed in a laboratory and stresses the crucial role of the laboratory coordinator, who must be a counselor, test administrator, tutor or teacher, supervisor, bookkeeper, and curriculum specialist. A check list for analyzing coordinator performance is included. The fundamental importance of testing to a laboratory program is stressed, and the objectives, basic terminology, and procedures for a successful testing program are explained. An example is given of a successful learning laboratory in North Carolina. The need to constantly evaluate the laboratory program is considered, as well as methods for evaluating programed instructional materials. A list of recommended self-instructional equipment and the names and addresses of principal equipment and materials vendors in the United States are provided. (JK)
