The Instructional Technology Course for Teachers (ITCT) is a 15-week course to provide practicing teachers with an introduction to the use of technology in instruction. It can be used either in colleges or in school system in-service programs. The ITCT curriculum is composed of eight self-contained units of instruction, which can be put together in a prescribed sequence or can be used separately as components of other courses. The ITCT uses three modes of instruction: self-study, seminar-practicum, and laboratory activity. The latter allows students to practice skills in using the new technology. The course uses television-film programs, audio tape programs, programed material kits, and print as sources of information. The eight units describe educational change, instruction as a system, new tools and techniques of instruction, instructional resources, individualizing instruction, writing behavioral objectives, essentials of equipment operation and production of instructional materials in terms of learning objectives, content, and resource materials. An index to producers and distributors of resource materials is included. (JK)
