Competency Designs For a More Humane Education.
Burke, J. Bruce; And Others
A computer-assisted, competency-based instructional model has been developed for a teacher education program. It is based on the assumptions that individuals should control their own lives and that technology should be used to expand the range of human choice. The model uses a systems approach to organize the human, curricular and environmental variables of instruction; in addition, students participate in decision-making, instruction is modular, mastery criteria are used, the affective side of learning is attended to, and an enhanced self-concept for the student is sought. Students join small groups, interact with an academic counselor, and have access to a Learning Center with varied resource personnel. They select educational experiences according to their interests and employ the computer to help put themselves through instructional modules whose components include the statement of objectives, pre-testing, the presentation of instructional material, reference to resources, and post-testing. Implementation strategies include, among others, seminars, small group instruction, laboratories, computer-assisted instruction and auto-tutorial sessions. (PB)
