Definitions and a Model for Four Design Processes in Education Based on Statement of Objectives.
Gullion, Christina
The thesis is a theoretical approach to curriculum development for occupational preparation. Following a brief introduction (which reviews the problems currently associated with allied health services job preparation), the first of the essay's two main sections considers theoretical questions dealing with the nature and scope of curriculum development. After reviewing the appropriate literature, section 1 also discusses theoretical and practical models for curriculum development and presents a four-stage model of educational design activities containing the following components: selection of overall education objectives, curriculum development, program design, and instructional planning. Section 2 deals with the determination of an appropriate form for the curriculum, surveying the literature with respect to the use of objectives in education for their applicability to occupational preparation curriculum development. In addition, section 2 discusses educational terminology with respect to curriculum objectives. A five-page bibliography is included. (JR)
