Staff Development Through the Implementation of Two Innovative Learning/Teaching Modes. Final Report.
Nabokov, Peter; And Others
The final report describes the generally successful development and use of two new instructional models for adult basic education (ABE): a peer instruction model and an instructional system for consumer decision making. Section 1 examines the two year application of the peer instruction model, first developed for the military, in various adult education programs throughout the country, including community centered adult education programs in Alabama and Vermont and adult school situations at the Compton Adult School, Compton, California, and the Memorial Adult School, San Diego. Background information, detailed local project reports, recommendations, and dissemination techniques are discussed. Section 2 examines the development of an instructional system for consumer decision making which incorporates consumer decision making and problem solving. Included are: background (discussing staff development and site visits), purpose (discussing educational objectives), design and development (including a prototype curriculum and field testing), and discussion of the application of the models to adult basic education situations. It was found that the two models were conceptually complementary, but dissemination mechanisms by which the ABE community could implement them were somewhat unsatisfactory. Various project related forms and comments are appended. (LH)
