A Modular Approach for Developing Competencies in Instructional Technology.
Russell, James D.; Lube, Bruce
The introductory instructional technology course at Purdue University represents a practical application of modular instruction, stated performance objectives, a multi-media approach to learning and mastery evaluation. The instructional modules are designed from a list of objectives and student projects. Students progress at their own rate toward mastery and are provided with a variety of learning activities and evaluation techniques. Instructional formats include large-group presentations and demonstrations, small-group discussions, guest subject-matter specialists, resource people, games and simulations along with individual study. A key element in the student-centered approach is success orientation--when students do not achieve, the course has failed. A mastery approach to evaluation is employed. The student selects from a variety of evaluation techniques, such as written quizzes, oral examinations, demonstrations and projects. He may re-test on any module he has failed to master. As a consequence of using objectives, a variety of learning strategies, as well as self-pacing and diagnostic evaluation, over 75% of the students demonstrate mastery of 90% of the course content.
