The Cognitive Domain. Contributions of Behavioral Science to Instructional Technology. Number Two. A Resource Book for Media Specialists.
National Special Media Institutes.
The five papers which comprise this volume share a common interest in the relationship of the problems of instructional technology to the insights of the behavioral sciences. The first chapter is concerned with the applications of present knowledge and empirical methodology to the solution of particular behavioral problems, an activity that presently consumes much of the time of the instructional technologist. The second paper focuses upon the characteristics of human learning which typify man, while following this is an analysis of the manner in which humans differ with respect to learning, organismically and situationally. The fourth chapter summarizes recent media research and considers the scientific and instructional uses of various technologies. The volume concludes with an examination of the other side of the interface--the behavioral sciences. This last chapter addresses the questions of what is the essential structure of the behavioral sciences and of how this structure lends itself to the task of the instructional technologist, which is to identify the optimal means of forming behavior in socially acceptable ways.
