The Changing College Curriculum-Issues and Implications. Instructional Systems in Higher Education-Specifications for Individualization.
Anderson, G. Lester; Ikenberry, Stanley O.
This report presents two papers concerning issues and implications of the changing college curriculum and specifications for individualization of instructional systems in higher education. The first paper stresses the need for leadership exercised in obtaining the commitment to values. This can occur only when processes of orderly implementation of change or reform are present and adequately administered. The second paper lists ten specifications for individualized instruction based on a review of negative characteristics of the conventional instructional system. The negative characteristics of instructional systems include the emphasis on time restriction, normative rather than criterion based curriculum, the symbolism of process, the concern for a manpower screen rather than manpower development systems, evaluation consciousness, and student adaptation made by the individual rather than by the system.
