Fellowship Program in the Design and Development of Instructional Materials. Final Report.
Fleming, Malcolm; Pett, Dennis
A two-year graduate program leading to a specialists's degree was administered to train individuals in the design of instructional materials for elementary, secondary, vocational and special education curricula. The program sought to achieve a multiplier effect by placing its graduates in positions in which they could help other educators to design the instructional software demanded by new technology and also served as a pilot program for other graduate training efforts. Eighteen students constructed individualized programs involving: a) coursework in instructional development, evaluation, the behavioral sciences, administration and curriculum; and b) a year's internship working with a teacher in the field. At the conclusion of the program evaluation indicated that the participants increased their message design skills, process and production skills, and behavioral science knowledge. Their professional growth was also promoted, as evidenced by the fact that most of them planned to begin doctoral programs in instructional systems technology as a preparation for careers as leaders in instructional design and technology.
