Re-Education in Human Communications: The Laboratory Method of Learning in Groups.
Brown, Glen J.
This booklet describes the learning experiences that take place in and as a result of a learning laboratory. Part one presents a brief history of the group dynamics movement, focusing especially upon the history of the National Training Laboratory of the National Education Association. Some significant characteristics of laboratory learning are presented, along with important ground rules of training group activity. Also, a brief review of some relevant learning theories is included. Part two describes the group dynamics laboratory at Indiana State University, its background and development, the staff, the students, and the training sessions. Part three is a report of the findings of a 1973 follow-up study of former laboratory participants that was designed to ascertain if the stated purposes of the course were being accomplished and whether the learning designs had any lasting effects. Finally, the present state of the laboratory approach to learning is summarized in part four. A bibliography is also included. (Author/RC)
