Airola, Joe A.; And Others
This handbook describes and develops the instructional system in use at North Harris County College (Texas). The document offers practical guidelines for the writing of course syllabi and the development of learning activities, and includes a selective bibliography of materials helpful to instructors. The learning activities discussed can be developed to implement and facilitate the objectives of a course. Ideally, several alternatives for learning activities will be provided for each objective, so that students can be provided with the most effective learning environment. Procedures for implementing 15 different types of group learning activities are provided, including audio-visual utilization, field trips, games, guest lecturers, case studies, discussion, role playing, student reports, and team teaching. Among the individualized learning activities suggested are audio-visual tutorials, computer assisted instruction, cooperative education, individualized instruction, learning resource centers, and programmed instruction. Appended are several short papers on what to look for in groups, how to conduct a film showing, how to stimulate lively film discussions, and how to write behavioral objectives for a course. (NHM)
