A Concept Training Model for Academic Curriculum Development.
Schroder, H. M.; Schutzius, Robert
The authors present an educational method based on Information Processing Theory that utilizes student information search and concept formation as a foundation for writing reports on selected real world problems. The method requires the development of a data library which contains information (e.g., financial, economic, social, political) relevant to the participating disciplines. Students work problems by submitting written questions to retrieve data. In addition students develop an information system relevant to their own career planning. This report covers theoretical foundations, description of an operational program and evaluation of the first full year of operation. Concept Training Students (substituting 50 percent reduction in contact hours with problem laboratory work) equalled a matched group of students in the regular program in the acquisition of knowledge, and showed a significantly greater increase in conceptual ability and motivation.
