A Model of Individualized Instruction for the Clinical Laboratory Occupations. The UCLA Allied Health Professions Project.
Utilizing the results from a task analysis, a consultant group with expertise in medical technology formulated a curriculum outline listing different levels of laboratory tasks according to the knowledge and skills required to perform them. Designed to enhance career mobility, the stages of learning for the clinical laboratory curriculum consist of: (1) entry level general laboratory skills and knowledge, and (2) basic skills in the clinical laboratory sections. The curriculum is composed of many courses, and within each course, there may be several units consisting of one or more modules having close content similarity. The modules, which are basic, self-contained instructional segments, begin with directions for student use, along with performance objectives, vocabulary list, and general introduction. This is followed by a skill lesson, which includes a specific performance objective, materials and equipment required, and a step-by-step illustrated procedure. A performance checklist and, in some modules, enrichment activities and reading assignments, complete the module. A sample instructional package consisting of an instructor's guide and instructional module for the hematocrit is included in this report. (SB)
