An Individualized Approach to Teaching Media Utilization.
Duane, James E.
A basic media utilization course at the University of Utah was developed on a self-instructional basis and was designed to teach skills related to the effective utilization of media in instruction. The course was organized around a set of 12 self-instructional packages with each package covering one topical area of the course. Six components formed the basic structure of a package: (1) rationale, (2) content description, (3) performance objectives, (4) alternative learning activities, and (5) self-evaluation instruments. The course took place in a supervised lab containing study carrels and multiple copies of all the resources outlines in the packages. Resources for the course included reference texts, sound and silent filmstrips, programed materials, audio tapes, films, and video cassettes. A small group discussion session was scheduled during the week in order for the students to meet with the senior instructor. The students worked toward a specific letter grade by the point system. It was found that the students were in favor of this type of course organization, individualized instruction, and the opportunity to progress at their own rate of speed. (Author/DS)
