Support Facilities and Requirements for Competency-Based Programs.
Harrison, Patrick; Nagel, Thomas
Competency based education changes the teacher's role from that of a deliverer of information to that of a manager of learning. In order for the teacher to be able to fulfill this function, it is essential that support mechanisms be established and maintained. Whatever support mechanisms are to be created should evolve from the objectives learners will be asked to accomplish. One simple hierarchy to use for this task includes knowledge level objectives, performance level objectives, consequence level objectives, and affective objectives. Since knowledge level objectives are normally the foundation on which the others are built, the creation of a resource center will play an important part in the development of all four levels of the hierarchy. The purpose of the center should be to provide a gathering point for students, to provide all materials necessary to achieve specified objectives, and to have help available when necessary. Learning packets or modules should be stored and distributed, and pre- and postassessments administered when appropriate. Materials such as filmstrips, videotapes, and simulations should be provided to support module objectives, and the center should have study tables, small group rooms, and learning carrels. (The major portion of this report describes the resource center in detail, including personnel, physical facilities, reference systems, furnishings, and equipment considerations.) (MK)
