Instructional Development for Individualized Learning in Higher Education.
Diamond, Robert M.; And Others
In order to provide the reader with guidelines for the development of individualized learning programs in higher education, this book focuses on the elements and processes of innovation that are essential for success. A frame of reference is built with particular emphasis on a working definition of individualized instruction and the basic elements of a successful instructional program. The organizational climate necessary for change and the sequential process of bringing about a specific innovation are then considered. The actual production and implementation of individualized materials are discussed as are approaches to the evaluation of an innovation. Finally, comments are made on lessons learned by the authors from past experiences in individualized instruction and academic innovation. The appendixes include a summary of copyright and royalty policies at many institutions and a description of some elements of successful independent learning facilities. An annotated bibliography on instructional development in higher education is provided. (DGC)
