Miller, Leonard A.; And Others
An experiment (January-December 1969), applying a packaged learning program, consisting of 30 individual units on a variety of subjects in a voluntary continuing education program in state rehabilitation agencies demonstrated significantly increased information about the counseling job among those counselors who actually took one or more units and indicated differential effectiveness of the units, with 17 associated with significantly higher gains i knowledge. Individual motivation to take the units, however, was not high. Two other experiments (June-December 1970) with different types of specially developed learning packages were also reported. Appendices detail research materials; 39 references. (Author)
