A New Kit of Tools for Designing Instruction.
Design tools used for instructional planning can be described in terms of inputs, outputs, major components, and their interrelations. The outputs are course length; student flow; and requirements for resources, such as facilities, material, personnel, and dollars. The inputs are the teaching institution, learners for whom the course was designed, and the course objectives. The major steps in planning the design are to characterize learners in terms of teaching methods and techniques, to state a general instructional policy after the analysis of learner population, and to analyze the curriculum. From these steps, specific strategies are developed based on design criteria, local resources, and student loads. (Four figures of the design process are included.) (BRB)
