The Use of Modules in College Biology Teaching.
Creager, Joan G.; Murray, Darrel L.
The components, advantages, and applications of modules (self-contained independent units of instruction focusing on a few well defined instructional objectives) in teaching college biology, including their use in investigative laboratories are illustrated by five modules on a variety of topics. The illustrations reproduce written materials used in the modules and provide transcripts of the audio-tape segments used in some. Descriptions of modularized programs, some speculation on their future place in instruction, details of sources of information on module production, and two bibliographies, (on audio-tutorial methods and the use of behavioral objectives and individualized instruction) are included in this report. In some cases, data from preliminary evaluations of the technique are included in the descriptive reports. (AL)
