The purposes of the project described in this report were to train curriculum specialists and to develop and test curriculum design training materials. The first phase of the project included the development of training materials and their use to train a small group of students. During the training of the pilot group of students, an effective design model was identified and a format developed for self-instructional materials. The design was a structured-curriculum model supplemented with additional elements and procedures suitable for complex subject matter, called the process model for individualization of curricular (PIC). This model became the bases for design of the curriculum course, and the PIC procedures were taught as a design model. This phase of the project ended with a revision of the materials based on the experiences and results encountered with the students. The second phase of the project was a series of field tests of the materials and their revision based on formative evaluation procedures. (Author/MLF)
