Individualizing Guidance and Training of Local Change Specialists.
Pittsburgh Univ., PA. Learning Research and Development Center.
This project used as an individualized model in the training of specialists in educational change. The individualized education approach consists of planning and conducting, with each student, general programs of study and day-to-day lessons that are tailor-made to suit his learning needs and characteristics. The rationale for using an individualized model was that each trainee brought a unique set of experiences and educational competencies to the training situation. In addition, although every participant expressed a commitment to constructive educational change, each differed in approach to change and views of education. Systematic provisions were made for taking account of the needs and learner characteristics of individual trainees throughout the entire process from recruitment and selection through program planning, personal/social counseling, planning and monitoring on-the-job experiences, job placement and follow-up. Data were collected in the form of academic records, tests, reports of training and job performance, observations, and interview protocols. All of these forms of data were employed in the educational guidance of the project. (BW/Author)
