Instructional Technology Training Program in Special Education. Final Report.
Hofmeister, Alan M.
The final report of a 3-year project emphasizes program activities concerned with the development of an interdisciplinary program to train doctoral candidates to apply instructional technology (including computer application, educational programing and stimulation, and research and development techniques) to special education problems. (It is noted that previous reports for 1970-71 and 1971-72 contained detailed information on multimedia instructional programs and the dissemination of information and materials about applying instructional technology to personnel training.) Included is information on admission requirements; candidates admitted; a training model (with major phases of experience/skill and application/integration); and program components (such as special education major, instructional technology minor, internship, and research and development dissertation). Products available for dissemination to school districts, community agencies, and other universities are listed. Also given are titles, authors, and abstracts of five research and four training papers, as well as project progress reports and information about publication of the research and training reports. The location and use of physical facilities is described, equipment is listed, and appendixes are included which give course descriptions and sample flyers advertising the interdisciplinary program.
