The Special Education Teacher as an Instructional Designer. Rational, Content, and Strategy for an Innovative Individualized Course on Instructional Design in Special Education. Working Paper 9.14.
Thiagarajan, Sivasailam
Provided are the rationale, content and strategy for an introductory course in instructional design for special education teachers. The teacher's need for varied competencies in instructional design, management and interaction are discussed. It is recommended that teacher training include development of such design skills as task analysis, learner analysis, specifying objectives, constructing criterion-referenced tests, using formative evaluation to modify materials, and validating instructional materials. The course content is seen to include development of a programed instructional unit and mastery of other instructional packaging formats such as multimedia packages, materials with psychomotor or affective objectives, and managerial materials. Described are basic strategies for training instructional designers (such as modeling and editorial guidance), resource materials, and application of the Keller method of individualized self-study instruction. Two appendixes contain lists of behavioral objectives for competencies in programed instruction and readings for the instructional design course. (LH)
