Innovations in Teaching and Training.
Smith, Robert G., Jr.
An instruction system is viewed as a "system of coordinated sets of instructional aids and activities designed to be as efficient as possible." The nature of an instructional system, cost-effectiveness ratios, automated instruction, and computer-based instruction are some of the topics considered. The general functions that must be designed into an instructional system are specified, and the advantages and disadvantages of various ways to accomplish goals of the system are noted. Specific problems concerning the design and evaluation of the system are taken up; these include sequencing instruction, designing lessons, and managing students. References which provide much of the basis for the report are cited separately for each chapter; additional references relevant to the general chapter topics are also supplied. Annotated bibliographies on training quality control and training objectives are also provided. (JY)
