Models for Individualizing Vocational-Technical Instruction.
Pucel, David J.
Eight major instructional models and the basic strategies which define each of them are presented in this paper along with contrasts of the individualized instruction models with the "traditional" model of instruction (characterized by fixed-content, fixed-time, variable proficiency). The author notes that the models could be useful to industrial educators and other educators in modifying their teaching activities so that they can communicate with each other about the differences in the strategies and instructional models they use. Prior to discussion of the models, the author briefly discusses (1) the need for individualized instruction in vocational education and (2) three dimensions for classifying models: Content dimension, time dimension, and proficiency or competency level dimension. The description of the eight instructional models includes a discussion of the possibility of organizing an instructional program using any of the instructional models as cells of a matrix which would include all possible combinations of the content, time, and proficiency levels. A figure of the matrix is included. (SH)
