Performance-Based Graduate Courses for Individually Guided Education. Revised. Monograph Number 1.
Sorenson, Juanita; And Others
This monograph presents an overview of the Individually Guided Education (IGE) concept, indicates procedures used to develop courses at the University of Wisconsin, and provides a description of the graduate courses. In the overview, IGE is defined as a comprehensive system to produce higher education achievements through providing for differences among children according to what they have learned, how rapidly they learn, and their learning style. The seven components of IGE are described. They are as follows: (a) instructional programming, (b) organization for instruction, (c) curriculum materials, (d) a model for measurement and evaluation, (e) home-school communications, (f) facilitative environments, and (g) research and development. Graduate courses were gradually developed to meet the needs of the teaching staff in IGE schools. These needs included leadership skills, curriculum materials to carry out instructional programming, and information about multiunit organization. The description of graduate courses includes a summary of course content; rationale, structure, and staffing of courses; and a description of the performance-based format. Appendixes include a chronology of IGE related events, graduate courses descriptions, and selected performance-based learning modules. A 7-item bibliography is included. (PD)
