The Development of the Competency Oriented Personalized Education Program.
Wisconsin Univ., Superior. Coll. of Education.
Following more than 2 years of study and research, the faculty of the College of Education developed a plan whereby the student experience is focused on three major elements: a) the Individualized Learning System, b) the Field Experience, and c) the Personal Development Experience. These three elements are integrated to constitute a total learning package (L-PAC). L-PACs are units of work with specific objectives, learning activities, and an evaluation plan. The student progresses through the required and elective L-PACs at his own pace. The Field Experience component is also competency oriented, and each course includes a number of field experiences which expose the student to public school classrooms and other work with children. The university professor and the cooperating teacher share the responsibility for developing a list of competencies. The Personalized Development Experience involves students in small interaction groups designed to develop self-understanding and human relation skills. A number of the L-PACs have both required and optional learning seminars, in which the faculty member serves as a resource person to the student. Evaluation of a student's progress is based on completion of objectives, thus dropping the traditional grade system. (Author/JA)
