Instructional Systems for Student Learning: The Burlington County College Approach.
Evans, N. Dean, Ed.
Since its inception in 1969, Burlington County College (New Jersey) has been dedicated to implementing a systematically designed approach to instruction and student learning. The core elements of the approach are as follows: (1) development of a basic college philosophy; (2) specification of general institutional objectives; (3) selection of curricular programs and statement of basic goals; (4) advance definition of outcomes of the teaching-learning process; (5) development of an orderly plan to move from a definition of outcomes to their attainment; and (6) planning for the collection of feedback. It is felt that a systems approach improves learning because it is based on well-defined, measurable outcomes. A "Three-Phase Systematic Instructional Development Model" outlines events that should be completed and suggests an order for their accomplishment. For each of the following, a three-phase procedural model has been designed: student learning needs are analyzed; learning objectives and test items are written; teaching-learning strategies are designed; teaching-learning strategies are implemented; learning outcomes are evaluated; and objectives and strategies are revised.
