Considerations on the Design of an Instructional System for Employer-Based Career Education.
Michaels, Eugene R.; And Others
The four papers prepared by the Far West Regional Laboratory are intended to serve as a model for designing an Employer-Based Career Education (EBCE) program. The authors of Chapter 1, Instructional Model: Bases and Rationale, have discussed underlying concepts and principles. Basic student provisions include: basis for job choice, orientation and experience in several jobs; development if minimal marketable skill; basic academic education; and cognitive, personal, and social competence. Organizational concepts focused on: behaviorally stated objectives, instruction in a functional context, performance-based instruction, learner-managed instruction, and guidance-oriented teachers. Chapter 2, Instructional Model: Intended Outcomes and Content, is directed to a discussion of the student-centered instructional system. Chapter 3, Instructional Model: Processes of Instruction, emphasized (1) the importance of clearly aligning instructional goals and establishing content before selecting processes of instruction and (2) the effect of being too encapsulated by the premise of group classroom instruction in conceptualizing instructional processes. The impact of personal/social/cognitive/career learning are examined in relation to the environments of skill acquisition, applied problems, and seminar. The concluding chapter, Instructional Model: Implementation and Management, has outlined steps in assessing the community, selecting EBCE jobs, and developing the instructional program. (EA)
